Brexit Support Fund
The SME Brexit Support Fund is available to offer help to smaller businesses dealing with changes in customs, rules of origin and VAT rules when trading with the EU.
This £20 million fund will help SMEs access practical support and prepare for further changes in import controls in April and July 2021, as set out in the Border Operating Model.
“SMEs who trade only with the EU and are therefore new to importing and exporting processes will be encouraged to apply for grants of up to £2000 for each trader to pay for practical support including training and professional advice to ensure they can continue trading effectively in the EU.”
To be eligible, businesses must import or export goods between Great Britain and the EU or move goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Applications will close on 30th June 2021 or earlier if all funding is allocated before this date.
