If you’re new to the exporting process, you’ll need to think about whether you’ll manage it yourself, or hire someone to handle it for you.

Your options include using the services of freight forwarders who will arrange clearing your goods through customs, customs agents or brokers who can act as your direct or indirect representative, or fast parcel operators who can deal with customs as part of their delivery service.

Export rules can be very complex, especially when it comes to products that have extra health and safety requirements, such as plants, food, chemicals and so on, so make sure you’re clear on the specific rules that apply to the goods you’re trading, and how they’ve changed post-Brexit.

To find out about current trade agreements with the country you’re exporting to, you can check the Government’s list of export rules by country.

First, you’ll need to plan where you’ll be exporting your goods or services to, looking at where demand lies and the process you’ll need to go through to sell there.

Exporters’ priorities may already be shifting as a result of Brexit, with ONS statistics showing that exports of goods to non-EU countries grew by 13.7% between 2018 and 2019, while exports of goods to EU countries decreased slightly, by 1.3%.

According to research from the Federation of Small Businesses, the US is the most important individual country for UK SMEs to trade with over the next three years, with 46% of small exporters choosing it as a priority.

However, this was followed by Germany (38%) and France (36%), and the EU is expected to remain the most important trading bloc for UK SMEs.

The UK also signed a new free-trade agreement with Japan in October 2020, which is expected to boost UK-Japan trade by £15 billion, with potential opportunities for UK companies in technology, energy, life sciences and more.

The Government’s aim is to secure free-trade agreements with countries covering 80% of UK trade by 2022.

The UK left the EU on 1st January 2021, and for British exporters, that presents both opportunity and uncertainty.

There’s potential for businesses to branch out to new markets outside of the EU, but that comes with a new set of rules and procedures to navigate now that the transition period has come to an end.

While most businesses are still recovering from the impacts of COVID-19, a recent UK Finance survey found that 42% of SMEs are now focusing their plans on the future, rather than the immediate impact of the pandemic, and 19% feel there are opportunities out there for 2021 and beyond.

Follow our future posts to gain an understanding of the steps you need to take to prepare your business for the international market place.

We’ve asked our clients what their top #accounting tips for other #SMEs would be.

“If you’re not already working with an accountant, then you should be. It might add a small cost to your business but an accountant can help you minimise your tax liability, help you avoid any potential HMRC fines and provide advice when you need it most. Chances are, any challenges you’re currently facing, they’ll have seen with other clients they work with.”
