Government funding to help you prepare for customs changes

£16 million in new government funding is now available to help businesses train staff in making customs declarations, and to help businesses who support others who trade goods to invest in IT.

This will ensure that trade with the European Union continues as smoothly as possible after Brexit. Grants can be used to support:

  1. Training costs for businesses who complete customs declarations, or who intend to in the future
  2. Funding for IT improvements, which is available to small and medium sized employers who are currently involved in trade as an intermediary
