As the country nears the EU exit deadline on 31 October 2019, businesses can get prepared this minute with Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, in association with Worcestershire Business Central.
Whilst we wait for further guidance from government, we know that leaving the European Union will have a significant effect on the way we trade with other EU countries, and to a lesser extent, with several other countries outside of the EU.
The Chamber has a range of services available to support your firm’s international trade activities and business planning both pre and post-Brexit, and, ‘deal’ or ‘no deal’.
With a dedicated team of international trade experts to support you with your EU exit related queries, local companies are encouraged to start their Brexit planning journey with the guidance they need to best prepare them for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
As each business has individual requirements, the services available range from:
- A Brexit advisory helpline for quick free business advice on: 01905 673 613
(open Monday-Friday – 9.00am-5.00pm)
- Tailored Brexit & International Trade training courses
- A free Brexit Essentials Preparation Guide
- Bespoke Brexit Consultancy
- A specialised bi-monthly newsletter featuring real time comments from business figures
The brand new Brexit International Trade Preparation Essentials guide has been developed in association with Strong & Herd LLP, and will help businesses meet the new compliances and requirements as they happen.
The changes will cover a wide range of business activities, but the guide has been designed to help you start to act right away by identifying the issues that will affect you and your company.
Key topics covered within the guide include Brexit and trading internationally, General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), temporary tariff suspension, your terms of business, employing EU citizens after Brexit and much more.
Though we know it’s not possible to cover every detail in the guide because the government’s preparations for Brexit will include some temporary arrangements, businesses can be reassured that help will continue to be available to keep you up-to-date with future changes.
