Advice for businesses

You can check our coronavirus guidance for businesses and employers for ways you can get help for your business.

There are a number of organisations that can help you with your business, from giving advice to providing funding.

Our Brexit transition page has useful links to assist your business with the new rules in 2021 following the transition period. It also provides information about how business may be affected.

We have partnered with the Essex Chambers of Commerce to provide a fully-funded programme of support to Chelmsford businesses who import and export. The programme offers much-needed international trade support to help businesses trade confidently and compliantly.
