The fund will enable traders to access practical support, including training for new customs, rules of origin and VAT processes.

For small and medium sized businesses that trade solely with the EU and are therefore new to importing and exporting goods can apply for the grants. To be eligible, they must import or export goods between Great Britain and the EU, or move goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Further information and how to apply can be found here.
