International Trade

South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce is a major issuer of International Trade documentation

In today's global trade landscape, exporting, importing and outward investment are key in driving growth, creating and safeguarding jobs, and enhancing a company’s competitiveness.

Why do you need documentation to trade internationally?

If you sell your products or services overseas, then you will need export documentation in some countries to clear customs. It can also be required as proof of origin to claim preferential duty rates or for banking purposes when payment is by Letter of Credit.

Letters confirming UK registration and/or Chamber membership may also be required to accompany tenders or contracts. Whether you require documents certifying, legalised, or an apostille by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), we are here to help.

Should your customer require their documents to be legalised by the Embassy, we are able to undertake the legalisation process, making it easier for you and your customer.

Our exporters are trading to an increasing number of countries and come to The Chamber for advice on the relevant international trade documentation and regulations.

Although more documentation is required as we are now a third country outside of Europe, our exporters have stated that it has been quite seamless moving their goods after Brexit.

We're here to help

At the Chamber of Commerce, we are proud to support our local businesses and that their locally manufactured products are sought after worldwide.
