5 Ways to Unlock Export Potential


Exporting your products or services can take your business to a whole new level. But how do you start on the export trail? Alistair Wesson, East Midlands Managing Partner Mazars answers five of the most vital questions.

The latest export statistics show that in January 2016 the value of exports (EU and Non-EU) decreased to £22.1 billion, and imports (EU and Non-EU) increased to £31.6 billion, compared with last December (2015).

Exporting is becoming more and more difficult, but there remain huge opportunities for those companies who know how, when and where to export. What's more, you don't have to be a huge company to export – smaller companies are often more agile and can react to opportunities a lot quicker than their larger counterparts who are sometimes cumbersome and slower to market.
