IS YOUR BUSINESS PREPARED FOR BREXIT?


The UK has voted to leave the EU and the spotlight is now falling on UK's trade position and the likely indirect tax consequences. It is predicted that Article 50 will be triggered at the start of 2017, leading to a change in the UK's relationship with the EU and the rest of the world. This will have an immediate impact on the movement of goods, services, capital and people. Is your business prepared for Brexit?

 

Secession planning will crystallise over the summer and further clarity on the UK's trade position will take shape. This event, organised by LCCI in partnership with EY's Global Trade Team, will provide you with a high-level overview of how to plan and identify where to focus your time and resources for Brexit. You will find out about the key challenges and opportunities that will arise.

 

The event will be followed by tailored workshops to assess your specific business needs. By attending this general session, you will influence the scope of workshop discussions.
