  • import from, or export to the EU and complete customs declarations (or intend to complete customs declarations in the future)

IT improvements grant
To apply for the IT improvements grant, a business must:

  • currently complete customs declarations for importers and exporters
  • have 250 employees or fewer
  • have an annual turnover of less than €50 million
