Join Andrea Collins of the Export Department as she provides a detailed overview of where we are at with regards to negotiations, continuity agreements, grandfathering of regulation, and existing government measures for a ‘no deal'.
UK / EU negotiations are down to the wire and there are huge levels of uncertainty surrounding the potential outcome. However, to focus on this would only serve to detract business minds from valuable planning time. Several government publications, not least being the new Border Operating Model and the UK Global Tariff, have provided some clarity as to how UK/EU trade will operate post 31st December 2020. Businesses have no time to lose in ensuring they are optimally prepared for the changes that will come into force on the 1st January 2021.
What will be covered?
Andrea also will also be looking at future trading through the lenses of goods and importantly, services companies who import and export, but who have predominantly traded within the EU block. This approach ensures that key issues are covered i.e. documentation requirements, customs procedures, customs valuation and HMRC compliance, new tariff structures, licensing, trading under preference, country of origin, client/supplier contracts and Incoterms, data, Intellectual Property protection, regulatory impacts, legislation updates and more.
The overriding purpose of this session is to introduce companies to issues they might not have considered, to highlight priority action that needs to be taken and signpost them to the most relevant resource and information to help them optimally prepare over the coming 90 days.
