UK: £16 MILLION FUNDING BOOST TO SUPPORT THOUSANDS MORE “CUSTOMS EXPERTS”

On 3rd September, a news release from HM Treasury announced that thousands of customs “experts” will be trained and businesses supported for trading post-Brexit with thanks to £16 million in new government funding.  The funding is now available to help businesses train staff in making customs declarations, and to help businesses who support others to trade goods to invest in IT.  It says that more than 3,000 agents have already been trained as part of an £8 million investment earlier this year, which has also been used to develop new online learning products for customs staff such as an electronic learning package and a new UK Customs Academy, launched on 12th August.
