SME Brexit Support Fund Opens for Applications

The government has made £20 million available through the current SME Brexit Support Fund.

You can apply for up to £2,000 through the SME Brexit Support Fund to pay for practical support, including training and/or professional advice, if you are a trader with up to 500 employees and no more than £100 million annual turnover.

Traders can apply for up to £2,000 in total through two types of grants:

Grant for Training

The grants can be used to provide training on the following:

– How to complete customs declarations

– How to manage customs processes and use customs software and systems

– Specific import and export related aspects including VAT, excise and rules of origin

You can apply for this grant to book on our International Trade Operations and Procedures (ITOPS) workshops, starting in September 2021, and February 2022, and our Customs Declarations Training in May 2021 and September 2021.


Grant for Professional Advice

The grant can be used to get professional advice, so your business can meet its customs, excise, import VAT or safety and security declaration requirements.

Valid advisory costs include:

– The expenditure must be directly related to consultancy advice procured by the applicant to enable the business to discharge its obligations to HMRC, such as customs, excise, VAT relating to importing or exporting or safety and security declaration obligations.

– The provision of professional advice on specific aspects of regulations such as clarification of rules of origin or VAT relating to imports or exports.

– Associated costs with the delivery of professional advice – such as the consultant’s travel and subsistence costs and costs of products supplied included within the consultant’s fee and essential to the delivery of the advice

This grant can be used towards the cost of our ChamberCustoms service.
