Find out what grants you can apply for to get funding for training and IT improvements if your business completes customs declarations.
HMRC have recently communicated an update on grants that can be applied for to get funding for training and IT improvements if your business completes customs declarations.
There are 2 grants available to help businesses complete customs declarations, in preparation for the UK leaving the EU.
Eligible businesses can apply to get funding for:
- training for businesses who complete customs declarations and processes
- IT improvements to help businesses complete customs declarations more efficiently.
The grant will give up to 100% of the cost of training for employees, up to a limit of £2,250 for each course.
It will also cover the cost of training run internally, up to a limit of £250 for each employee on the course.
For IT improvements, the grant will give you up to €200,000 (the maximum amount of state aid available).
The funding can be used to reimburse what your business has spent on relevant IT improvements and training since 31 July 2019, as well as in the future.
Full details regading the 2 grants are available via gov.uk.
