Compliance is not just an administrative chore, it is a vital link in the international trade world and needs to be given due time and attention.
There is an old saying "It doesn't take any longer to do things right than it does to do them wrong!" - and this is very true. When a company starts looking at compliance it can be a daunting task; we are only looking at areas of compliance that relate to international trade - ie export, customs, VAT, licensing, re-export regulations, bribery, anti-boycott rules, wood packing, embargoes, sanctions, import duties - and already we feel overwhelmed.
If doing it right doesn't make the job any more difficult why do companies get compliance wrong?
S&H LLP work closely with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), the Department for Business Innovations & Skills (BIS) and law firms and see a number of business already in trouble in some area of international trade regulations. There appears to be two main reasons - they weren't aware of the law and/or the person who used to do it left.
