Imports, insurance and social media are on the agenda for the autumn webinar series hosted by British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM).

Experts from chartered accountants Rayner Essex, business insurance broker Premierline and social media strategists Fraggleworks will give online seminars to the furniture trade in October and November. 

On Wednesday, 6th October, Rayner Essex will deliver a webinar around doing business with the EU and NI post Brexit, including importing and exporting goods, import duty and the Import One Stop Show (IOSS).

Premierline will discuss the diverse insurance needs of businesses and the importance of securing the correct cover at a webinar on Tuesday, 19th October, while Holly Whittles from Fraggleworks will cover social media channels, strategy and content at a webinar on Thursday, 11th November.

The webinars continue a series of free online events which launched last month with sessions from Reddie & Grose, Fox Williams and the Furniture and Home Improvement Ombudsman service.

BFM MD Nick Garratt said: “The BFM webinars are a useful way for members and the trade to access expertise on subjects that are meaningful to the running of their business.

“We are grateful to our partners for sharing their insight, experience and knowledge.”

Each webinar will last between 30 and 90 mins, with an opportunity to ask questions at the end. The sessions are free and the trade can book a place online at Furniture Manufacturers Events | Furniture Shows, Fabric Shows (
