Free workshops to help businesses understand how well-prepared they are for Brexit

At these events you will hear from specialist advisors to help you understand how well-prepared your business is for Brexit.

The workshops will take place in Belfast, Omagh and Templepatrick.

At each venue, there will be presentations on the following topics by the specialist advisors to provide you with guidance and advice on:

  • Strategic sourcing covering tariffs and customs controls, Rules of Origin implications, and unnecessary complexity and costs in supply chains.
  • Customs, tariffs and taxation covering changes to the current regime, export market reviews, use of free trade agreements, potential changes to VAT arrangements, and other taxation issues.
  • Transport and logistics covering analysis of current routes and the alternative options, and cost reduction opportunities.
  • Impact of Brexit on your employees covering the movement of people and the UK immigration policy post EU Exit, employment contracts and visas, and measures to ensure staff are fully aware of their immigration status post EU Exit.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in a wide ranging question and answer session before a networking lunch.
