About Export Academy: International business payments made easy

Join the Department for International Trade (DIT) North East and international payments specialists, WorldFirst for a FREE virtual masterclass, covering the implications of foreign exchange when trading overseas.

Whether you trade domestically, internationally, or both, all businesses rely on a payment ecosystem to send or collect payments from anywhere.

Payments are central to all business activity. For businesses who trade internationally, it is essential to understand the complications that can arise.  In most cases, a natural by-product of a global payment is an exposure to foreign exchange and during times of uncertainty the instability of foreign exchange can be larger than the average profit margin.

In this session we will:

  • Provide an overview of the implications of foreign exchange on businesses
  • Discuss the key considerations to help you implement a simple but robust system and policy
  • Review bank vs non-bank solutions and the options available, including the evolution of payments within an increasingly technology driven market
