Exporting - an overview

Although your business may have an established UK market, there's often no reason why it couldn't successfully compete overseas too, growing your revenue and profit.

But before you start, you need to have sound knowledge of your would-be markets. You also need to consider whether your products are right for each target market and whether you have the necessary resources to start exporting.

This guide contains basic information. For additional basic information see our section on export basics. For intermediate and detailed guidance see our section on practical exporting.
