New ‘Post Brexit Planning and Compliance’ fundable by Government grants

A press release from The Institute of Export & International Trade following the Government's announcement about grant funding for businesses doing training to prepare for Brexit.

New ‘Post Brexit Planning and Compliance' course fully fundable by government grants

The Institute of Export & International Trade has today announced the launch of the new ‘Post Brexit Planning and Compliance' training course. The course is eligible for a full 100% grant announced by the Government this morning.

The course provides practical advice and guidance to ensure that any business involved in importing or exporting is fully up to date on regulations and customs procedures. By attending the course businesses will reduce the risk of non-compliance which can result in goods being delayed at the border, impounded and in the worst cases, result in fines and possible imprisonment.

The Government grant support means that all businesses can send their team members for free. The funding is limited, and it is expected that the funds will be used up before the deadline of January 2021.

All 250,000 businesses currently trading with Europe are eligible for the grant to attend IOE&IT training courses. The grants can be put towards any training course that enables businesses to complete key Customs processes including Customs declarations. This knowledge will be needed for continued trade into Europe once the implementation period finishes at the end of 2021.

The Institute's new course is the latest addition to its suite of expert-led training courses equipping businesses with the knowledge they need to stay on top of an everchanging regulatory landscape.

Businesses must reduce risks in their supply chains, with coronavirus, Australian bushfires, and the US-China trade war all impacting recently.

The opportunity to gain export skills for free, through the grant funding, is one that businesses should look to exploit.
