SME Brexit Support Fund

Friday, 7 May 2021

The SME Brexit Support Fund is for small and medium sized businesses who are new to importing or exporting. It can help adjust to new customs, rules of origin and VAT rules when trading with the EU.

It could give you up to £2,000 to help with training or professional advice. Your business must have up to 500 employees and no more than £100 million annual turnover.

You can use the grant for training on:

  • how to complete customs declarations
  • how to manage customs processes and use customs software and systems
  • specific import and export related aspects including VAT, excise and rules of origin
  • It can also be used to help you get professional advice so your business can meet its customs, excise, import VAT or safety and security declaration requirements.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) is administering the grants for HM Revenues and Customs (HMRC).

Applications will close on 30 June 2021 or earlier if all funding is allocated before this date.
