The government announced in February 2021 that it will release a £20 million SME Brexit Support Fund to help small businesses with changes to trade rules.

The scheme will allow trades to apply for a grant up to £2,000 to pay for practical support for importing and exporting. The fund also aims to help businesses to prepare for the implementation of import controls which will come into force between April and July 2021.
