The Trader Support Service was designed to help businesses moving goods under the Northern Ireland Protocol after the Brexit transition period came to an end. Under the Northern Ireland Protocol, all Northern Ireland businesses continue to have access to the whole UK market. 

The service was due to end this year but has been extended until the end of December 2023. The digital platform helps businesses and traders of all sizes continue to trade seamlessly between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The service is free to use and:

  • Offers comprehensive education, training and advice about the changes to the way goods move under the Northern Ireland Protocol.
  • Can complete customs and safety and security declarations when these are required, for movements between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so that businesses do not have to access HMRC systems directly.

Since the Trader Support Service was launched more than 47,000 businesses have signed up.
