This full day compact course runs for 7-hours and deals with the complexities of being the ‘middle man’ in a merchanting arrangement.

The course addresses the contractual difficulty of being both a buyer (from the supplier) and a seller (to the end user.)

Specific attention is paid to;

  • Exchange Control issues;
  • The various VAT positions in merchanting;
  • Marine Insurance complications when merchanting;
  • Synchronizing the appropriate Commercial Terms;
  • Changing documents to preserve anonymity;
  • Payment mechanisms.

The suitable delegate should have a fair understanding of trade as this is an advanced course.

The course fees include electronic copies of the presentation material, the relevant Exchange Control manuals, VAT Interpretation Notes and Guides, plus the 6th Edition of Trading Words & Phrases

HOW TO provisionally BOOK

Once registered through CelerPro, whenever you enquire of any training service-provider who is using the CelerPro system all you will need to do to initiate a provisional booking will be to use your username and password.

Step One: On the right-hand side of the screen click the ‘continue’ button. This will initiate the provisional booking process beginning with a pop-up box which allows you to capture your details.

Step Two: Once you have captured your name, preferred username and email details, and have created a password, you will be sent a ‘link’ by email to continue. This is an anti-spam measure. You may then close your browser. If at any point you forget your password you can retrieve this by following the on-screen prompts.

Step Three: Use the anti-spam email link to continue the provisional booking process, and to capture your company name and delegates’ details. At any point you may add to, amend or cancel the provisional booking.

Step Four: Follow the on-screen prompts to completion. Note that there are tips and notes available throughout this process whenever you hover your mouse over the appropriate information icon.


Return User

Step One: If you are not already signed-in, then on the right-hand side of the screen either click “sign-in” on the page-header ribbon or click the ‘continue’ button. Either option will allow you to sign in.

Step Two: Sign-In requires that you enter your username and existing CelerPro password (if you have forgotten your password you may use the same pop-up form to retrieve this).

Step Three: Finalise the provisional booking with your company name and delegates’ details from your records or create new company and / or delegate records. You may do this whenever you make a provisional booking or through your profile page.
