Whether you’re a first-time exporter or a seasoned overseas trader looking to branch out into new markets, the Department for International Trade (DIT) provides unmatched international trade advice and practical support to UK-based companies. The Department for International Trade will give you a solid grounding in everything you need to know to begin exporting your products and services.

DIT runs a Passport to Export Service that offers export advice and assessments and support programmes for SMEs. These provide prospective exporters with training, planning and support in order to grow their services overseas.

Open to Export is also a great hub of international trading knowledge. Focusing primarily on SMEs, Open to Export  is an online service that provides bespoke answers to your exporting questions. Also unique to Open to Export  is that in addition to government support, it gives you the opportunity to speak directly to established exporters, lawyers, accountants and independent trade advisors.

For options closer to home, your local Chambers of Commerce offer a range of services to help exporters ‘maintain their competitive edge’ in the international marketplace. Working closely with the DIT, its Global Membership package features cost-saving benefits and added services, including online access to Tate’s Export Guide.

Do also get in touch with UK Export Finance , the UK’s export credit agency. It provides trade finance and insurance solutions and advice to support UK exporters.

Don’t forget to consider how you’re going to market yourself. You’ll need to consider how to internationalise your website  and how to protect your IP when trading outside the UK.
