Businesses are being offered support to help tap into the overseas market.

The ERDF-funded Access North East programme is helping businesses prepare for the next stage of their journey into overseas markets.

With special focus on the markets of Brazil and India, the workshop aims to assist delegates in tackling the key issues and challenges they can expect to face when expanding to invest in an overseas market.

Hosted by Access North East, the event aims to guide north east firms through the myriad of issues to ensure their companies are ‘fit’ to invest overseas, and in turn help them avoid damaging mistakes.

It will take place on Tuesday, September 30, from 9.30am to 2pm at Newcastle’s Copthorne Hotel, and will highlight for decision makers planning investment strategies, key issues such as reviewing core company structures; investment models’ options; understanding tax regime implications; and selecting and vetting potential partners.

One-to-one surgeries with Ray Jones of RTC North and Deloitte’s Graeme Brough and Michael Cobb will follow talks from each of the experts on a wide range of investment issues; including contracts and transfer pricing.

The event is free to attend and will serve as a prelude to a sponsored Market Visit to India in early October 2014 and a Brazil Market Visit later this year in November.

Spaces are limited so to register email or call 08450 7688330.
