Welcome to Miller Rosenfalck's UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) guide to getting started in exporting. We are proud to be associated with the UK's national export challenge. We hope that you will find this guide useful.
Even through challenging economic times, there are unparalleled opportunities for British firms around the world as the emerging high growth markets continue to grow. In the UK, we need to encourage more SMEs to take the plunge and export, and to encourage those already doing so to spread their wings. We know that companies which begin to export experience significant gains in productivity and competitiveness. In essence, businesses which get involved in the international market become more dynamic, innovative and successful.
This guide outlines the point you need to consider before venturing into international business. And it tells you where to go for help and guidance. As we are a law firm, it is perhaps no surprise that we urge all exporters to seek proper legal advice. But exporting does not usually start with legal issues - rather, with an opportunity! And then with research. A great place to start is by talking to your local UKTI International Trade Adviser, who has years of business experience and can give you one-to-one advice. UKTI's staff around the world can provide you with specialist local, in-market intelligence and guidance.
This guide also steers you to other sources of help - from logistics to intellectual property, from cultural issues to getting paid. Britain's future prosperity will be built on its success in international markets. Exporting provides a major opportunity for growth in the UK economy - and it could be a major opportunity for your company too.
