Free help is on offer to Dorset businesses who need support with international trade. To enable business growth, Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (Dorset LEP) is funding expert legal and financial advice.  

Dorset LEP has appointed Lester Aldridge and PKF Francis Clark to provide up to two hours of individual specialist advisory support on complex international trade matters and this is now available for businesses to take advantage of.    

Lorna Carver, Dorset LEP Director said: “We’ve been encouraging businesses to prepare for EU transition and signposting to the government’s Check-Change-Go campaign for some time. It’s become clear that there is a need for more focused support around legislation, taxation and finance for businesses trading overseas and this support will enable Dorset’s businesses to make necessary changes quickly and reduce disruption to their operations.”

This support is available to all businesses in Dorset, whether they are already trading internationally, looking to enter new overseas markets or are entirely new to international trade. 

Businesses interested in the service can find out more about the different services on offer and complete an enquiry form on our Help with International Trade webpage.
