Humber businesses urged to get their Brexit questions answered by a free service offered by the Humber LEP Business Growth Hub

Jon Brunton, Growth Hub Manager at the Humber LEP

The Humber LEP Business Growth Hub is offering specialist advisory and consultancy services relating to EU transition and the various trading issues that it presents to the region’s businesses.  

Using funding from the government department for Business, Energy and Industrial  Strategy (BEIS), the Humber Business Growth Hub has rolled out an “EU Transition  Support Service” for businesses, which provides advice and support on the changes  

that have arisen since the UK’s Transition period with the EU ended on 31st December 2020. 

The service offers comprehensive access to various sources of specialist and  consultancy level advice, and all at no costs to businesses, and is being delivered by  three partner organisations, but must be accessed by March 31st 2021.  

Firstly, Enterprise Growth Solutions (EGS), the team that deliver the Department for  International Trade business support service in Yorkshire & the Humber, have been  appointed to manage all incoming enquiries and to provide a triage and diagnostic  role with businesses. The team at EGS will support businesses with any question or  issue arising as a result of Brexit and will make sure that the business gets the  advice and guidance that it needs.  

Meanwhile, the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce have also been  commissioned to provide information, advice and guidance on the various technical  issues relating to the import and export of goods and services, such as export  declarations, commodity codes, rules of origin, and the movement of goods across  national borders.  

Finally, Wilkin Chapman LLP have been recruited to offer legal advice pertaining to  the various legal changes that Brexit has brought to “doing business”, such as the  new points-based immigration system for hiring foreign nationals, changes to data  protection and intellectual property laws, and also on the regulation of manufactured  goods, amongst many other legal considerations affected by Brexit.

Jon Brunton, Growth Hub Manager at the Humber LEP said “We’ve thought long and hard about the support that Humber businesses need to help them navigate the new trading environment that faces us now that the UK’s transition period has ended. 

“We are therefore really pleased that we are able to work with EGS, the Hull &  Humber Chamber and Wilkin Chapman LLP to offer this advisory service. These organisations are highly experienced in their respective fields and are all at the forefront of understanding the many changes that Brexit has brought to doing business. 

“The service is funded only until 31st March 2021 so we are strongly encouraging all  businesses in our region to make the most of this service whilst it is available. Even if  a business does not have a specific issue at this time, but would still like some  general advice and clarification on what Brexit means for their business, we would  recommend them to access this service now whilst it is available, and all at no cost  to them.” 

To find out more and to access the service, visit the Growth Hub website at  www.humbergrowthhub.org/eu-transition or email: EUTransitionYH@mobile.trade.gov.uk with your Brexit related question, issue or enquiry.
