CBPE-01: CAPE TOWN: Export Best Practice


This is a high-energy four-hour workshop where, with  the co-operation of the participants, we draw up a model or a structure of an Export Company’s ‘current practice’.

There is no fee for this event however attendance is ONLY open to delegates who are also attending any two or more of the three one-day events in September, in Somerset West - i.e. Incoterms (19th): SA VAT & Excon (20th): L/Cs for Beneficiaries (21st).

In this process, we uncover the ‘challenges’ around Exchange Control, VAT, Customs and contracts etc. Once we have this exposed, we can start to build "Best Practice" models – on the understanding that nothing physically must change i.e. the way you physically operate is not restricted, but rather how you may better administer and price the models correctly – meaning ‘legally’ first and foremost. This draws on the material each delegate will have covered in the previous three days.

The models balance the drives and needs of Sales, Finance Operations and Management. Once the Export Company can get these four budgets to understand ‘why’ the models are the models, then they can more readily be expected to adopt these standards in their specialist area – ensuring compliance and a consistency of purpose i.e. no one department acts unilaterally.

Little is achieved unless all four components are on-board and nothing is achieved if the models must trickle upwards – they must become imposed practices, hence the need to get the key players on board.
