Apply for grants if your business completes customs declarations

When we leave the EU, businesses will have to apply the same customs rules to goods moving between the EU and UK as they would for the rest of the world.

Find out how you can apply for grants to fund:

  • training that helps your business to complete customs declarations and processes
  • IT improvements to help your business complete customs declarations more efficiently

You can use the funding to reimburse what your business has spent on relevant IT improvements and training since 31 July 2019, as well as in the future.
