What is AEO – Authorised Economic Operator?
AEO is an internationally recognised quality kite mark issued by HMRC to traders who proactively manage risk and have fully documented systems and procedures in place controlling their international supply chain.
This Session run by Tracey Renshaw from Import Export Support will explain what an international AEO is and what benefits businesses will have once they obtain one.
Aims of this session:
- What is AEO & do I need it?
- The Key Benefits to an AEO
- The requirements & steps to get AEO authorised
Prior to setting up as a consultant 3 years ago and following a long career in Finance during which I was captivated by understanding and resolving the issues that surround the importation, manufacture and re-export of goods. Back in 2014, I decided to set up Import Export Support with the primary reason to work with companies on their customs authorisations and procedures to help smooth out the ripples in the supply chain and to reduce the cost of moving stock around the globe. Since set up I have assisted companies who operate in different markets in their endeavours to improve their international activities with the main focus of my work to work closely with HMRC & the client to ensure and improve compliance in order to secure the benefits. I have submitted several successful duty reclaims, set up customs warehouses, gained customs simplifications including Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), Customs freight with simplified procedures (CFSP), Inward & Outward Processing authorisation (IP & OP) & Simplified Import VAT Accounting (SIVA) & assisted with setting up several Deferment Accounts with the new Combined customs guarantees (CCG).
