This grants part-funds the costs that can be incurred in investigating and researching export markets, e.g. exhibiting at Trade Fairs, preparing marketing material and developing websites specifically targeting overseas markets.

Brexit Information

brexithome

Early planning and preparation is a critical factor in a company’s ability to respond to the business challenges that Brexit presents. The Brexit SME Scorecard online tool has been designed to stimulate companies into thinking about the key areas that may be impacted in their business because of Brexit and to self-assess their level of preparedness. Using the online tool micro and smaller businesses can self-diagnose whether they are ready for Brexit.
