Growth Hub: Expert Advice
Need advice on Brexit? The Government has issued a series of technical notices giving businesses information on how Brexit may affect them in the event of no deal being agreed. The guidance covers everything from importing and exporting to product labelling, business regulations and workplace rights. Check out the government website: here
In addition, the Department for International Trade (DIT) has created three informative videos which answer queries on tariffs. There are videos on:
- What is a tariff?
- Tariffs: what happens if we leave the EU with no deal?
- What is a Tariff Rate Quota?
We have established two primary sources of advice for businesses; after calling our single point of contact, the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Business Helpline – 0300 111 8002 – many of our businesses are referred to one of our LEP Growth Hub advisors.
The first port of call for local businesses seeking advice or support is the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Business Helpline. You can contact the Business Helpline on 0300 111 8002 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are seeking local support with any business issue, the Business Helpline will point you in the right direct. If you feel your business could benefit from a more in-depth review, then the Business Helpline will refer you to the team of Growth Hub Business Advisors, who will make an appointment to meet you at your business premises at a time of your convenience. More details are available on the Growth Hub website: www.stokestaffsgrowthhub.co.uk The Growth Hub website now also features a new Business Helpline live web chat facility.
The Growth Hub Advisors can give you free face to face advice which is delivered by the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce.
