How to trade internationally

Online show will give tips on trading overseas

Watch a live show from Santander on November 25 for tips on how to start trading overseas. British businesses could be missing out on international trade opportunities due to lack of confidence or understanding of what support is available.

Have you considered trading internationally, but weren’t sure where to begin? Whether you want to import or export goods or services, you need to think about the markets you are targeting, understand the rules and regulations of trading in those markets and know how to build relationships with potential foreign customers. Most importantly, do you know who to turn to, to get this information and support?

Businesses need to have the confidence to speak to advisors such as their accountants and banks, as well as trade organisations like the British Chambers of Commerce. These are important sources of information and can be turned to for their experiences, knowledge and connections in order to overcome the challenges associated with international trade.

They will also look at how international networks can help companies when they are initially setting up trading partnerships.
