If your business moves goods between the UK and countries in the EU, they will need to follow new customs and tax rules.
Their business will be affected by the new rules if they:
- buy goods from an EU seller and bring them into the UK
- send goods they’ve sold to a buyer in an EU country
- have not exchanged money, but need to move equipment they use for their business, between the UK and the EU.
You can now apply for the SME Brexit Support Fund. Smaller businesses can get up to £2,000 to pay for practical support, including training or professional advice to adjust to new customs, rules of origin and VAT rules when trading with the EU. Applications must be received before 30 June.
