The UK Government has announced a Brexit Support Grant.  If you are a UK SME then you can apply for a grant of up to £2K to help with Brexit advice and for training to adapt to the changes to trade rules as result of Brexit. You can apply for up to £2,000 through the SME Brexit Support Fund to pay for practical support, including training

It covers professional advice, if you are a trader with up to 500 employees and no more than £100 million annual turnover.

The Government has made £20 million available through the current SME Brexit Support Fund. Provided you meet certain eligibility criteria, HMRC may provide funding towards the costs of training and/or professional advice, to help you with changes to trade rules with the EU.
