• £8 million funding scheme for customs intermediaries and traders open

    Customs intermediaries and traders completing customs declarations can now apply for grants to support training and IT under an £8 million investment from government.

    As part of this investment, £5 million in funding is now available to help businesses, based in, or with a branch in, the UK to meet the costs of employee training and IT improvements. Businesses who will benefit from the funding are encouraged to apply early. Applications will close on 5 April 2019, or earlier once all the funding is allocated.

    Businesses can apply for one or both grants:

    There is £2 million available to fund training for intermediaries and traders completing customs declarations (or intending to complete customs declarations in the future). The grant will provide funding for up to 50% of the cost of training staff.

    There is £3 million available in IT improvement funding, available to small and medium-sized employers in the customs intermediaries sector currently completing customs declarations on behalf of importers and exporters. The grant will fund investment in packaged software that increases the automation and productivity of completing customs declarations.

    More information can be seen here or in the PDF attached.
