We’ve left the EU – now get ready for importing and exporting
Worcestershire business owners can access free advice to help them prepare to leave the EU. Business owners need to know and plan for changes that will happen to the way they do business at the end of the transition period on 31st December 2020. Businesses can book a free individual appointment in February or March 2020 with a specialist advisor from Aardvark Marketing Consultants on https://brexitready.me/
Henrietta Brealey, director of policy and strategic relationships at Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, said: “Negotiations on the future UK-EU relationship are only just beginning and we’re already seeing what’s set to be a major sticking point come to the fore – regulatory divergence. Many businesses want to see as frictionless trade as possible. However comprehensive any final trade deal is, it will be a trade deal – not membership of the EU. As a result, it is important for businesses to remain vigilant as the way they do business with the EU is going to change.”
The most recent survey of West Midlands businesses revealed that 40% of local firms export goods and 27% export services to the EU. 47% import goods from the EU. These individual coaching sessions are designed to make sure each business owner is fully aware of the changes and how they can affect their business so they can plan accordingly.
Kevin Aisbitt, Growth Hub Manager for Worcestershire Business Central, said: “It is paramount for us to support local businesses through the practicalities of the UK leaving the European Union. I urge all businesses to attend to ensure that their business is prepared for any eventuality of Brexit.”
