Could you support our research into the export market?
ACCA is currently undertaking a global research project into how to encourage more small businesses to export and participate in international trade. The research will also consider the role professional accountants currently (and could potentially) play in helping to advise, support and shape small businesses’ export journeys.
The objectives of this project will be to twofold:
it will seek to provide practical guidance to small businesses on relevant strategies and support towards exporting themselves
it will consider where small and medium sized practices (SMPs) already provide relevant advisory services and support to small businesses in this area.
We are therefore very keen to speak to both finance professionals working in small businesses and those working for SMPs who are able to provide their own insights and perspective on this topic. In particular we want to identify your views on the opportunities and challenges towards exporting today – you do not have to be actively involved in exporting/international trade to participate in the study.
If you are interested in participating in a 30 minute phone interview as part of this research please email ACCA’s Head of SME Policy firstname.lastname@example.org
