Export documentation services:
Exporting your goods and/or services to an overseas market invariably means that export documentation will be required. Somerset Chamber of Commerce offers a direct dial help line together with document provision and checking services. Chamber members will be eligible for discounts on a number of documents.
Identifying the correct document is vital to effect smooth passage of goods through customs. For new exporters this can be confusing – we can provide the right document and help to make sure your company meets customs requirements.
