Introduction to JAEPA/Tax Considerations for the Japanese Market (3 CPD Points - Stream B - FTA048)

Crowe Horwath’s Customs and International Trade team delivered a webinar on 6 October 2017 focussing on the Introduction to JAEPA and tax considerations specific to the Japanese market.


This webinar recording is suitable for exporters, customs brokers and freight forwarding staff. It is recommended that business managers and owners take note of requirements and implement measures to meet compliance requirements.

Program structure

NOTE: import/export regulation and requirements are complex, and no training program can ever cover the exact circumstances you come across day to day - this is especially so for Free Trade Agreements where outcomes are country, product and exporter specific - we highly recommend that you consult a customs broker or freight forwarder for professional advice, see a list of registered members of the Freight & Trade Alliance.


An optional assessment is available with 10 multiple choice questions. Students must attain an 80% pass mark to qualify for customs broker CPD points (an online certificate will be available to download or print by going to "Results & Certificates" with a record maintained on ComplianceNetFTA).
