The DVD, Exports Reporting, targets five common export compliance and reporting errors, and provides step-by-step guidance on how to report export information correctly the first time round.
"It is extremely important for Customs to find innovative ways of delivering business improvements. The launch of today’s educational DVD will provide a resource that is designed to assist industry efforts with voluntary compliance in their export reporting process," National Director Compliance, Peter White said.
"By following the principles laid out in the DVD, exporters can avoid the delays that occur when Customs has to verify data. Reducing errors will increase productivity and allow Customs greater opportunities to target high risk non compliance."
In October, a preview of the DVD was enthusiastically received at the Customs Brokers and Forwarders Council of Australia (CBFCA) national conference.
Council Executive Director Stephen Morris said it was a great direction for Customs to take in training, both for CBFCA members and exporters.
"Training staff is one of the biggest challenges for companies in this sector and with such technical data entry and reporting requirements, it’s fantastic to now have an easily accessible and effective product that our members and exporters can show their staff," Mr Morris said.
