Legal issues for exporters

Understanding and dealing with the legal issues involved in exporting leaves you free to get on with building your export sales. Fortunately, there is plenty of help available. The government is keen to help exporters and business support organisations can provide both general and country-specific advice.

As well as making sure you comply with UK and overseas legal requirements, you'll need to anticipate potential problems. You should think about how to protect any intellectual property and make sure you draw up clear contracts with customers and agents.
