Unleashing the Power of Freeport in Liverpool – A Game-Changer for Business!

Liverpool Freeport, located in the United Kingdom, is one of several designated areas where special customs and tax rules apply to encourage economic activity and investment. Liverpool’s Freeport is set to become a very desired business destination.

With its business-friendly policies, tax incentives, and state-of-the-art infrastructure, the city is attracting investors from every corner of the globe by slashing tariffs and streamlining customs procedures. The influx of businesses and increased trade will trigger a wave of investments in transportation, logistics, and warehousing that benefit the whole region.

In this session we will hear from the Freeport’s Heads of Customs and Tax Sites about the freeport benefits and you will get an update on current developments. There will be time for some Q & A.

Here are some potential benefits of Liverpool Freeport:

  1. Customs and Tariff Advantages: Goods entering the Liverpool Freeport are not subject to customs duties or import taxes until they leave the Freeport and enter the domestic market. This can lead to cost savings for businesses that import, process, or re-export goods.
  2. Trade Facilitation: Liverpool Freeport is strategically positioned to enhance trade flows due to its proximity to major transport routes, including the Port of Liverpool and the Manchester Airport. This can lead to smoother and more efficient import/export operations.
  3. Also job Creation, Investment Attraction, Innovation and Research, Supply Chain Enhancement, Infrastructure Development and the regeneration of Deprived Areas
