Still not sure about how Brexit impacts your business?
We offer a snapshot of the Brexit Welsh Government ‘Local Communications Toolkit’
We explore the guidance it offers business to business and the services sectors
It’s been well publicised in the business press that on 24 December 2020, an agreement was reached between the UK and the EU setting out the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
This is the first free trade agreement the EU has ever reached based on zero tariffs and zero quotas. With the transition period over, new rules for business with Europe are here.
We offer a snapshot on how the toolkit can help your business understand its impact on your ability to trade with the EU.
The Brexit Checker includes:
How Brexit impacts businesses that import and export goods
To continue trading with the EU, you will need to follow new rules for importing and exporting, including changes to customs processes and licensing. The tool kit explains how to get expert help and help businesses get a contract in place as soon as possible with a customs intermediary like a freight forwarder or customs broker. And if your business is preparing to move goods under the Northern Ireland Protocol you can apply for the free Trader Support Service.
How Brexit impacts businesses that deliver services between the UK and the EU
To make sure your EU-qualified staff can continue to provide professional services to clients in the UK you will need to ensure their professional qualification(s) are recognised by the relevant regulatory or professional body in the UK.
Find out more at GOV.UK/transition. You may need to have your UK professional qualification officially recognised if you want to work in a profession that is regulated in the EU / EEA or Switzerland.
