You Can Export: Managing Your Finances when Selling Overseas – Sheffield

February 21, 2019 at 9:30 AM- 2:00 PM

Understanding cash flow and payment is a crucial part of any successful business, but particularly for those who wish to export. Multiple currencies, exchange rates and payment terms can all further complicate business transactions, and if you’re not prepared for it, can slow down your international growth.

In this interactive workshop, brought to you by Natwest, The FD Centre, UK Export Finance (UKEF), ERDF and the Department for International Trade, we will look at the key points of managing your finances for overseas business, as well as how to access grants and funding that can contribute towards export-related expenses. We will also cover the differences in dealing with overseas and online payments, as well as how to manage your cash flow to help your international trade grow further.

In this half-day workshop, we will cover:

  • Managing cash flow and payment terms
  • Minimising funding gaps during production and shipping times
  • Export credits, insurance and funding
  • Working with online payments
  • Accessing funding and grants

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Confidently set payment terms and effectively manage your finances
  • Understand the end-to-end funding cycle
  • Work out ways to minimise your payment gaps
  • Understand online payments
  • Enquire about DIT and UKEF support and the Exporting for Growth* grant programme

Between 13:00 – 14:00 there is the optional opportunity for a 15 minute appointment with each of the speakers for further tailored guidance and support.
