Join USFIA and KPMG to learn about new EU customs legislation, abolishment of first sale for export concept, and dutiability of royalties.


KPMG’s Trade & Customs Practice, the Premier Partner of the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA), is a recognized authority on United States and foreign trade matters. This comprehensive webinar will help guide you through the recent European Union proposals to amend its customs legislation, as they relate to first sale for export appraisement and the dutiability of royalties, beginning May 1, 2016. In this webinar, KPMG will explain the potential impact of the proposed legislation as well as alternatives EU importers may consider to minimize the impact of the proposed amendments.

During the webinar, Bart-Jan Kalshoven, Director of KPMG’s Trade & Customs practice in the Netherlands, and Chris Young, Managing Director in KPMG’s Trade & Customs practice in Chicago, will discuss the background of the recent proposals, the impact for the industry, and alternatives that should be considered.

Bart-Jan and Chris both have substantial experience in global trade and customs. Bart-Jan is a Netherlands-based customs advisor with extensive footwear and apparel experience both as outside counsel and as an in-house trade compliance director. He is frequently engaged by multi-national companies to assess and/or defend the customs value used upon importation of merchandise into the EU. Chris has 14 years of experience in international trade, including seven years as a trade and customs professional with KPMG in the United States and seven years in the United Kingdom; he also spent time as the global customs manager of one of the world’s largest retailers.
