Import & Export

Specialist Accountancy Services for Import & Export

Feel like your business is treading water financially and considering importing or exporting as an opportunity that will help your growth take off?

Experience shows us that exporting isn’t just about large companies; small businesses often have just as much potential to grow and expand their UK success overseas. Nevertheless there are barriers to overcome, such as currencies, resource management and legislation. At Forrester Boyd, we can help you to plan for all of the financial considerations and changes associated with exporting your business’ products and services.

Importing is arguably easier as people want to supply you. If you cannot find the goods or services required at the right price from within the UK you may choose to look further afield to satisfy your business’ requirements. While importing may help to do this, it does carry an administrative burden in relation to import duties and VAT – the rules of which differ depending on the location of your supplier.

Regardless of whether you are importing or exporting, it is crucial to get sound financial advice and support. In addition to our core accountancy and tax services, the Forrester Boyd team can help you with:

  • import and Export VAT considerations
  • resource planning
  • identifying finance requirements
  • business plans
  • preparation of periodic management accounts
  • establishing realistic and achievable Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s)
  • implementation of IT systems
  • HMRC enquiries and tax investigations.

We are keen followers of the Government’s ‘Exporting is GREAT’ campaign, which was launched in late 2015 to provide  opportunities to businesses with the aim of getting 100,000 more companies exporting by 2020. However, we’re also acutely aware that businesses may face the consequences of our ‘Brexit’ vote in the coming years, with the likelihood of an increased focus on exporting.

Our team makes it their business to stay abreast of the latest news and changes in importing and exporting for UK businesses and their global partners to ensure that we can keep you fully informed and able to concentrate on developing your business’ success and resulting personal wealth.
