Previous workshop participant in Preparing to Export:

"I can't imagine there is a single part of the course that won't be applicable in the long/short term future."

Preparing to Export is run by Highlands and Islands Enterprise, in partnership with Scottish Development International. The course is free of charge, but because it’s a form of EU State Aid, it counts towards your overall De Minimis Aid allowance. Each company is allowed a total of €200,000 in De Minimis Aid over a 3-year period (with a lower limit for fisheries and some other categories).
