SMALL BUSINESSES IN THE SOUTH EAST ENCOURAGED TO APPLY FOR BREXIT SUPPORT FUNDING BEFORE 30 JUNE DEADLINE

With just two weeks to go before the deadline, small and medium sized businesses in the South East are being encouraged to apply
for funding to help them adapt to new customs and tax rules when trading with the EU.

The £20m Brexit Support Fund, which closes 30 June, enables businesses who trade with the EU to access up to £2,000 of funding
for practical support including training and professional advice on new customs, rules of origin and VAT processes.

To be eligible for the grant, businesses must have no more than 500 employees and turnover no more than £100m. They must only
import or export goods between Great Britain and the EU, or move goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. If businesses
already import or export goods to and from a non-EU country, they are not eligible.
