The first Mazars Business Briefing for 2014 will help Dorset businesses look at the potential for growth abroad.

David I’Anson, partner with the Poole office of international accountancy and business advisory firm, Mazars, who is organising this special briefing says: “With the UK economy starting to grow, many organisations are looking abroad for areas of future business growth. This free seminar, in association with experts from UK Trade and Investment, looks at some of the challenges trading across international borders can bring and aims to help businesses start to develop solutions.” 

Topics covered include finding out how UK Trade & Investment can help with strategic advice, market research, business introductions and overseas exhibitions and travel.

There’s also advice on how the UK Government can assist businesses to insure overseas debts and access bonds or working capital for specific export contracts. Looking ahead to matters once you’re trading abroad, global mobility and how best to manage internationally mobile employees will also be discussed.

Speakers include Nicky Busst, International Trade Adviser, UK Trade & Investment, Hugh Francis,  Export Finance Advisor, UK Export Finance as well as Steve Asher,  Head of Global Mobility Services with Mazars.

The Mazars Business Briefings are a series of unique breakfast seminars aimed at keeping the finance professional working in business up to date with recent developments. The seminars are free to all people involved in company finance across Dorset.

David I’Anson explains: Our Business Briefings have become a popular one-stop shop where you can hear expert speakers from Mazars and other advisors talk on a broad range of current topics.

“ In response to feedback, we know that busy professionals don’t want seminars impacting too much on their working day. These breakfast briefings are designed to give an overview within just a couple of hours and will provide an insight to topics finance professionals and business owners can take away and use immediately in their businesses.”

This seminar takes place on Tuesday 18 March at Goldstands Stadium, AFC Bournemouth, with registration from 7.45am. To register to attend this free seminar which includes breakfast, contact Sandra Waring at Mazars on 01202 680777 or email:
