Trade Advisers – New Chamber Member Offering Solutions International Trade Challenges

Posted: 28th June 2021

The UK’s departure from the EU has brought international trade to the centre stage with concepts such as origin, tariff classification and Customs declarations in common parlance.

New Chamber member, Trade Advisers, has been guiding and training clients in a range of subjects necessary to cope with the post-Brexit obligations. Here Brendan McAuley describes what Trade Advisers does…

International trade has become increasingly controversial, political and complicated. More changes are coming as countries seek to gain advantage, companies try to cope with uncertainty and governments promise technological improvement. Trade Advisers exists to guide clients through these challenges – bridging trade gaps.

We are a consulting, research and training organisation that specialises in international trade. We work with SMEs, corporations, governments, industry bodies and economic development organisations, to help them prepare for and adapt to changing trading environments. Thousands of firms have benefitted from our guidance.

We offer expertise in trade agreements and disputes, government policies, border controls and facilitations, Customs paperwork and procedures, agricultural goods rules, market development, transport and logistics.

How we can serve Scottish businesses

Since 2016, we have been helping firms prepare for and implement strategies to cope with the new EU-UK trading relationship through webinars, training workshops and practical tailored advice. We also guide companies to identify and enter new markets.

Government funding is available for much of this work.
