There are many reasons for taking your business beyond the UK. More than 95 per cent of the world’s purchasing power is outside of Great Britain, and the internet and global payment options make it easier than ever to showcase and sell your goods to international customers. British companies are in an especially strong position to access new markets: the UK is the world’s most broadly connected country, and international demand for British products is high.
Though going global is easier than you may think, successfully navigating the process does involve planning and research – such as setting yourself up as an international trader and understanding Customs. But support is here to help you recognise market trends and opportunities, making sure you’ve got a solid plan for going global and, ultimately, getting your goods to the market. This guide is designed to accompany every step of the global trade journey and help you make growing your business internationally a straightforward and rewarding experience.
