Business Sheffield, the business support programme for Sheffield City Council, is funding a dedicated Brexit Support Service for Sheffield companies to help them trade successfully post Brexit and support them with information and advice from a single service.
Business Sheffield’s business growth manager Yvonne Asquith said: “We want to give our local businesses the best opportunity to continue working with their customers and suppliers across Europe and support new growth opportunities for those aiming to develop new markets. We are funding a dedicated team to ensure the service is personal – you can speak to someone rather than being lost in web pages or pressing the next phone option.”
The service is co-ordinated by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce with the support of the Sheffield International Trade Centre and specialist advisers.
Enquiries to date have included a wide range of organisations from start-up companies and retailers to advanced manufacturers with questions about trading with Northern Ireland, selling online to Germany, how to import from Turkey and talking through the numerous documents and declarations now required.
The phone line is manned from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday where you will speak to someone, or you can use the email address and receive a call back.
