International Trade Help


Navigating the world of international trade can be complex if you haven’t done it before. There’s so much to think about: commodity codes, rules of origin, customs declarations, not to mention the changes as a consequence of the UK leaving the EU. However, trading internationally can be a fantastic way to grow and scale your business as it gives you the opportunity to diversify into new markets.   

Before you jump straight in to International trade, take a look at the support provided below from the various different initiatives available in the D2N2 area. From the Chamber of Commerce to the Department of International trade, we can signpost you to the right support for your business.
