Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce is joining forces with Bibby Financial Services to put together a free event about the finance options available to businesses trading overseas.
Managing Your Finances When Trading Overseas will be a roundtable discussion, exclusive to Chamber members, which will provide practical support and advice on trading abroad.
Milton Keynes Chamber chief executive Paul Griffiths said: “Many businesses trading overseas are unaware of the export or specialist finance available to them and how to use it, or the options available to avoid putting an unnecessary strain on their business’ cashflow.
“This event will explain the financial supply chain and how funding gaps can be reduced by using trade finance to purchase stock when importing, and invoice finance when exporting.
“With exchange rate volability a top concern for every business, we’ll explain the options available to protect against currency fluctuation, using case studies to put the theory into practice and share some real-life examples.
“Places on this comprehensive event are limited so members are advised to book early.”
During the event attendees will discuss the finance options available for importing and exporting goods and the financial supply chain from receiving an order to delivering goods.
Attendees will also find out how they can protect themselves against current exchange rate volatility and bad debts and consider legal nuances, cultural differences and language barriers.”
The event will take place from 8am to 10am on 8 February 2019.
