Export Start Guide

Doing Business Overseas

In January, we supported the launch of the Export Start Guide, a comprehensive guide aimed at supporting exporters across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The guide was developed in partnership with Enterprise Ireland, Chartered Accountants Ireland and ourselves.

About the Export Start Guide

“Our sustained economic growth will only come from businesses developing their global footprint. Supporting first time exporters and indeed more experienced exporters to identify new markets, reach new customers and further develop their partnerships with existing customers is a core part of our role and central to strengthening the local economy.” Alastair Hamilton, Chief Executive, Invest NI

The guide is a valuable resource for businesses considering exporting and supplements the information in our Exports section and that found on nibusinessinfo.co.uk. It offers practical advice and information on areas including resources, capacity, evaluating demand, selecting and understanding a market, price expectations and payment, distribution, marketing and export planning.

What to expect from the guide

The guide is free to download and will provide information including:

  • Is exporting right for your business?
  • How to export
  • Export planning
  • Export checklist
  • Case studies
