To support businesses through #COVID and as part of the UK’s #Brexit preparations, the government is awarding #grants to businesses which complete customs declarations for recruitment, #training and IT improvements.
In terms of the Recruitment grant, this covers #hiring new #staff to help UK businesses increase their capacity to complete customs declarations.
The grant will give you £3,000 towards recruitment costs for each new employee. Upfront recruitment costs will not be covered for an employee redeployed from another part of the business, unless this is part of an external recruitment campaign.
You could also get up to £12,000 to cover the #salary costs for each new or redeployed #employee.
