British business has always looked overseas for opportunities, and foreign trade is vital to the UK economy; there has never been a better time to trade internationally.
Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, with two local International Trade Offices, has many close working relationships with export/import agencies including the British Chambers Of Commerce Global Business Network, HM Revenue & Customs and the Department for International Trade (DIT) to name a few. We provide support and advice to business in all areas of International Trade development. We also provide up-to-date country information together with advice on essential documentation. We are authorised by HM Government and nationally accredited to certify Certificates of Origin (EC and Arab) EUR1 and A.TR certificates, invoices and other documents as required in International Trade and also ATA Carnets for temporary exports.
