Brexit – How Ready are you, really?

October 8, 2020 at 2:00 PM- 3:30 PM

Brexit – after years of debate, a referendum and a General Election, we’re on the last 3 months of the Transition Period and our separation from the EU as a member state.

Come 1st January 2021, we will be trading with the EU as a ‘Third’ country, regardless of whether we have a Free Trade agreement in place or not.  With this new status will come increased compliance responsibilities & paperwork for businesses.  Indeed, if the government does negotiate a Free Trade Deal, that won’t mean less compliance and paperwork responsibilities but more.

So how ready is your business really?  Lots of companies have understandably been waiting for more certainty before they invest in contingency planning, new procedures or training.  We now have the certainty:  we know what the two models are for 1st January 2021.

Now is the time to understand whether you are ready or not.  Your aim must be to minimise avoidable disruption to your business.

How will this webinar help with that?

We will go through the key issues that will have a direct impact on how you do business with your EU customers and suppliers – effectively, those issues that will require a change in your administrative  procedures or paperwork,  or have the propensity to cause delays or add costs.

Presented as a checklist with background on each issue, the webinar is designed so you can check your own in-house procedures and modify or introduce new procedures in time for the changeover.

Issues addressed include:

  • H S Tariff Codes
  • Customs Entries
  • Duty charges
  • Incoterms
  • Customs procedures
  • Logistics
  • Free Trade agreement due diligence
  • The Northern Ireland question


Barnsley business rate payers may be able to access a free place on this webinar (one delegate per course, per company) and should contact us before booking to clarify eligibility. Any companies that book on for free outside of the Barnsley area will be invoiced.
