The Milton Keynes office of international accountancy and advisory firm, Mazars, partnered with national organisations at a Department of International Trade event which attendees hailed as “very educational”.
The Department of Trade Going Global event took place at MK Dons Stadium inside the Export Hub Truck, which converts into a seminar room.
David Sayers spoke for Mazars on international tax and establishing a business abroad – particularly focusing on the Chinese market.
David said: “These are interesting times for UK exporters, with the challenges and opportunities brought forward by Brexit foremost in most business owners’ minds.
“Many local businesses are already working in international markets or working on their strategy to grow their business, but there is the potential to achieve more, for both B2B and B2C.
“The Going Global event was essential for examining what exporters want in a post-Brexit world, and I was delighted that we could talk to so many local businesses. I’d urge any other business owners looking towards the export market who couldn’t make this event to get in touch to discuss opportunities overseas.”
The event was hosted by The Department for International Trade (DIT) South East, together with Mazars, the China-Britain Business Council and Barclays who arranged a high quality, interactive event to help exporters understand how their business can achieve sustainable growth through exporting and finding new markets.
David added: “Feedback throughout the day was very positive, with attendees telling me ‘I will be able to do some new thinking based on what I have heard today,’ while another said the event ‘certainly provided some good areas to focus on’.”
