UK government announces £20 million SME Brexit Support Fund

Feb 16, 2021

On 11 February, the UK government set aside £20 million to help small and medium sized businesses adjust to new customs rules of origin, and VAT rules when trading with the EU.

The funding of up to £2,000 is available to UK established businesses with under 500 employees/under £1m turnover who are new to importing/exporting processes. It is available whether the business intends to make declarations themselves or use an agent’s services. The funding covers both training and professional advice and we’ll keep members updated in coming weeks as the application process opens.
