The British Exporters Association (BExA) is an independent national trade association representing the interests of the export community. Established in 1940 as the National General Export Merchants Group, it became the British Export Houses Association and then in 1988 adopted the name of British Exporters Association when it recruited manufacturing companies as members.

Revised BExA Guide to Successful Exporting
To meet demand, BExA has reprinted and fully revised its Guide to Successful Exporting. Written for exporters by exporters, it is ideal for those who are new to exporting. It covers the full range of exporting issues from setting a strategy for export through to choosing a local representative, bidding, contract writing and customer care. It touches on customs duties and VAT, which are examined in more detail in BExA's Guide to Export Compliance.
The revised guide can be downloaded here. Hard copies are available free-of-charge to members, although BExA reserves the right to make a postage/delivery charge. There may be a nominal charge for supplying copies to non-members. The Association is grateful to The Royal Bank of Scotland for sponsoring this publication.
