HMRC

Customs Grant Scheme

The Customs Grant Scheme was set up to help businesses prepare for new customs arrangements from 1 January 2021. This includes supporting businesses who trade with the EU to undertake training to improve their understanding of customs requirements and working with customs intermediaries. It also helps customs intermediaries increase their capacity to complete customs declarations and accelerate growth of the sector in order to meet the increased demand.

HMRC has made over £80 million available through the grant scheme including a record £50 million recently added in July 2020. Provided you meet certain eligibility criteria, HMRC can provide funding towards the costs of a new training project, investing in your IT, training your staff, and the costs associated with recruitment to improve your organisation’s capacity and efficiency.

Please note that the Grant Scheme is nearing full allocation of funds. If your application cannot be fulfilled due to funding, it will be placed on a waiting list to have funds allocated if and when funds are returned. All applications are considered on a first come first-served basis.
