AS THE value of the pound begins to return to a competitive level, local companies are being urged to look at international trading opportunities.

Trading internationally is a powerful way for UK businesses to thrive and grow, by expanding into new markets and enhancing their customer base. Business Link, in partnership with UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), can help businesses in Hertfordshire explore the significant opportunities exporting may afford them.

By visiting www.businesslink.gov.uk/tradetariff or calling 08457 171615, businesses can access information on goods classification, duty and excise rates, government controls and commodity descriptions.

Pat Smith, chief executive of Business Link in the East of England which covers Comet country said: "Business Link, in partnership with UK Trade and Investment, can help businesses in Hertfordshire to succeed internationally.

"Our free UK trade tariff tool makes it much easier for businesses to find information about overseas trade; information, which up until now, would have been accessed through purchasing and updating large paper-based directories.

"In addition, Business Link and UKTI advisers can help exporters, new and current, to make the most of current economic conditions to boost overseas revenues.
