  2. Recruiting new staff to help your business complete customs declarations
    • Available funding: £3,000 towards recruitment costs for each new employee, and up to £12,000 to cover the salary costs for each new or redeployed employee

       

  3. IT improvements to help your business complete customs declarations more efficiently
  • 100 per cent of the costs of IT expenditure
