British businesses exporting to Europe can access one-to-one advice via a new phone and online service.
From queries about rules of origin, to guidance on recognising professional qualifications and entering new markets, the Export Support Service will provide a single point of contact. It will help exporters navigate a range of complex information simply and quickly.
International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan said: “We are listening to the needs of businesses and that’s why we’re launching this fantastic new one-stop shop service, making it easier for British companies to export to Europe.
“We are focused on helping exporters fulfil their potential. Having a dedicated export support team at the end of a phone ready to help will ensure they can access the information they need, and get on with the job of selling their world-class products and services abroad, in turn helping the UK to build back better.”
The service comes ahead of the launch of the government’s Export Strategy which aims to drive economic recovery and level up the entire country.
The strategy will promote UK business's ability to seize the opportunities to sell goods and services around the globe. It will ensure our most productive businesses can compete using our new independent trade policy, supporting jobs and prioritising the UK’s most dynamic sectors.
Businesses can access the Export Support Service by visiting www.gov.uk/ask-export-support-team or calling 0300 303 8955 to speak to a UK-based member of the export support team.
