In preparation for the UK’s departure from the EU the government is offering £16 million of funds across two grants under the ‘Customs intermediaries grant scheme’ to help organisations prepare for the completion of customs declarations.
Businesses can apply for these grants through the online portal. The following information will need to be provided when completing your application.
Once the grant has been approved, organisations will be asked to provide proof of costs for the training/IT improvements outlined above. Following this, organisations should receive the grant within 30 days.
Please note that applications will close on 31 January 2020 (or earlier if funding is fully allocated).
For more information on this topic please refer to the HMRC guidance, or alternatively contact Robert Marchant or your usual Crowe contact.
We have also produced a number of other updates to help organisations prepare for Brexit. Read our top 10 list of practical actions to be prepared.
