27/04/2022 

Your company has been hit by Brexit, and you haven’t received any Special Export Assistance – Brexit yet? As a Structural Partner of Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), the BCECC is happy to inform you that a new call has been launched for Flemish companies being influenced negatively by Brexit. You can apply from April 19 to May 13, but only 200 applications will be accepted. 

If you are an experienced exporter with at least 5 full-time employees, an export share of at least 20%, a positive equity, and you haven’t received any Special Export Support yet, you can apply for a one-time subsidy of €10,000. Being able to prove the negative consequences of Brexit on your business is crucial. You can use the subsidy for any costs related to the internationalization of your business, except your own payroll costs. This means you can either choose to focus more on the United Kingdom, or to diversify your markets.
