EU Exit support for businesses
A new fully funded programme of in-depth virtual training sessions is available for South East Midlands businesses to understand the new processes and paperwork requirements when working within the EU.
As of 1 January 2021, new rules affecting business operations apply. While the trade-deal relieves the impact on businesses, work to understand and use the new paperwork, processes and regulations begin to keep businesses moving in 2021.
SEMLEP’s Growth Hub, Bedfordshire Chambers of Commerce, Milton Keynes Chambers and Northamptonshire Chambers have teamed up to offer 20 free virtual workshops over February and March, sharing their wealth of expertise in export and import documentation and processes.
Aimed at businesses who are involved in export and import – including contracting and processing documentation, the sessions are designed to help businesses understand how the procedures and documentation now work in a post EU-Britain.
The virtual series will offer workshops on a range of topics, designed using insight of business need. Topics include export customs declaration, tariff classification, customs special procedures and imports declarations and compliance. Any business within the South East Midlands is eligible to attend at no cost to them.
Businesses interested in finding out more about the programme, topics or wanting to book, should visit the SEMLEP’s Growth Hub website on bit.ly/EUExitEvents.
