A new service has been launched to help Swindon and Wiltshire business leaders navigate the complexities of international trade post-Brexit.
Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership's new initiative came on stream this week. Business navigators from the Swindon and Wiltshire Growth Hub are on hand to offer help understanding the new customs and border processes implemented by EU member states from 1 January 2021.
Chris Stevens, Swindon and Wiltshire Growth Hub manager, said: “Now that we know the terms of the UK-EU trade deal, our EU Transition business readiness team is here to support local businesses to continue to trade with Europe.
"Whether this is about importing or exporting goods to the EU, or providing business services, we can signpost information and provide access to specialist advice.
"We look forward to supporting businesses in Swindon and Wiltshire and helping to achieve as smooth a transition as possible”.
In addition to the specialist advice service a range of webinars will be taking place over the coming weeks to support businesses with the latest advice and guidance.
Businesses are advised to register their interest in attending with the Swindon and Wiltshire Growth Hub at https://growthhub.swlep.co.uk/support/EUExit
