With the deluge of VAT questions we’ve been seeing here at Centurion it was great to pick up on the news from HMRC that the SME Brexit Support Fund will be open for applications of up to £2000 to help covers costs of getting expert VAT training and professional advice. The note from HMRC and the link to the support fund is below:
“The government announced that small and medium-sized businesses (SME’s) can get up to £2,000 through the SME Brexit Support Fund to help with training or professional advice. The grants can be used for training on:
- how to complete customs declarations
- how to manage customs processes and use customs software and systems
- specific import and export related aspects including VAT, excise and rules of origin.
The fund will be administered through the existing Customs Grant Scheme and will open for applications next month. Find out more about the support fund on GOV.UK.”
