InterTradeIreland have a range of supports available for SMEs to encourage them to plan for Brexit.
Research shows that Agri Food will be most impacted in the event of a hard Brexit, however very few have made any formal plans and we have noticed a low number of applications from that particular sector.
InterTrade supports are detailed on https://intertradeireland.com/brexit/
In particular note, Start to Plan voucher, this voucher is €2250 towards training and/or bespoke consultancy advice in the areas of Customs/Supply Chain/Legal etc…
Eligibility includes :
- SMEs less than 250 employees,
- turnover less than €50million

There is an online application form which only takes a few minutes to complete & applications are assessed within a maximum of 10 working days, but we are trying to get a decision turned around within a few days where possible. https://intertradeireland.com/brexit/brexit-start-to-plan-vouchers/
