Export Mechanics for the small business exporter

Tuesday, August 6, 2019 10:00am to 1:00pm

US goods and services are in demand across the globe.  But to be successful, it’s essential for a business to understand all of the aspects of international sales.  The devil is in the details but that’s where the profits are too.  This workshop will take you under the hood of export practice to uncover details you’d rather know beforehand than discover in mid-export sale.  The free 2-hour program will provide an overview of key considerations exporters needs to understand.  Topics will include:

Properly classifying and reporting your export
Complying with US (and foreign) laws controlling exports/imports
Developing a logistical plan
Export documentation
Typical export terms of sale
Getting paid and risk mitigation strategies
Export financing sources

The program will conclude with an overview of additional resources and services available for growing your export business.
