Warner Goodman Commercial is pleased to announce a forthcoming seminar on “Doing Business Abroad”, an evening of presentations in Southampton for SMEs interested in trading, expanding or operating overseas.

By some estimates, the decision to trade internationally can result in profit and income increases of over 20%. It is for this reason that the UK government has placed such a high priority on encouraging international trade among British SMEs.

The seminar will focus primarily on trading with the United States and European mainland and will cover issues that are of most concern to SMEs including cross-border tax considerations and the treatment of VAT.  As well as external speakers, the presentations will include members of the Warner Goodman International Commercial team with Geoffrey Sturgess discussing the challenges of international contracts, US Attorney at Law and UK Solicitor Jonathan Strassberg presenting on how to minimise the commercial risk when training in or with America, and Aled Williams advising on how to trade with the Far East.

Steve Grant, Head of Warner Goodman Commercial, said of the event, “Our International Commercial team has expanded considerably within the last couple of months, and so we are using this opportunity to share their vast experience and knowledge with businesses in Hampshire.  Many businesses are now looking at overseas markets, but a large percentage of them are unaware of the pitfalls, and this is where our seminar will assist.”

The free event will be held on Wednesday 15th October with registration beginning from 5.30pm.  For more details or to book your place, please email
