Help with International Trade from Dorset Gateway

Dorset LEP’s business growth hub, Dorset Gateway, facilitates a range of funded support to businesses operating in Dorset. To see how we can help, explore the range of support below and complete the enquiry form. 


1 - 2 - 1 TRADE ADVISOR SUPPORT

To help Dorset businesses understand the changes and potential impact on their operations, we're working in partnership with Dorset Chamber of Commerce to provide access to specialist trade advisors. This is a tailored 1-2-1 service and our advisor will help you work out what's best for your business.  


LEGAL SUPPORT

Knowing your way around International Trade laws can be challenging. So Dorset Gateway is working in partnership with Lester Aldridge to provide funded support to Dorset based businesses who would benefit from specialist legal assistance in international trade. 


TRADE CLINICS

We've partnered with audit, tax and business advisory specialist Mazars to offer 1hr virtual business clinics. Aimed at Dorset businesses needing support for trading overseas, topics can cover immigration and work travel, supply chain and business models, customs duties and VAT, financial reporting or data privacy. Complete the form below to register interest.


HELP WITH TAX

Understanding tax obligations is part and parcel of trading internationally. We're working with PKF Francis Clark to provide Dorset businesses with free expert guidance, so you'll know what's what and how you'll need to pay. 


EXPORT DECLARATIONS SERVICE

In partnership with the Dorset Chamber of Commerce expert international trade team, up to 200 Dorset SMEs can access our funded export declarations service. The service is open to Dorset businesses who already export goods and services, with some funding set aside for up to 40 businesses looking to enter new international markets for the first time.
