Catalonia Trade Portal

The information you need to do business around the world

What customs tariffs apply to your product in each particular country? What licences do you require and what inspections must be performed to introduce it specifically in one market or another? What documentation and procedures must be complied with? And if you want to import, how can you know which countries offer the most financial and administrative advantages?

The Catalonia Trade Portal is the new essential tool for any company wishing to do business internationally. The point of reference where you will find all the information you need so that your project does not encounter borders.

How does it work?

The Catalonia Trade Portal is an online service provided free of charge by ACCIÓ to Catalan companies to speed up and facilitate their access to international markets.

To use it, you need simply set up an account with a valid business fiscal identification number (NIF). If, in addition, your company is a user of ACCIÓ’s advanced internationalization services, you will be entitled to a premium account with additional services.

Much of the documentation you will find on the Catalonia Trade Portal is in English, because it is taken from international sources.

If you are a Catalan company, set up a user account and start to take advantage of the Catalonia Trade Portal for free.

Personalized attention

The Catalonia Trade Portal is a digital, real-time self-service website. You will find a whole host of valuable information.

But if what you find is not enough, if you are not sure how to make the most of it or if you would like more personalized attention, we recommend the analogue, more human version of the Trade Portal: the Technical Office on Internationalization Barriers.
