Business challenges

Suppliers: Mapping and Assurance
  • Without supply chain visibility, there may be hidden risks and costs that will only become apparent post-Brexit
  • Lack of readiness of critical suppliers could have an impact on business continuity and reputation
Trade, logistics, customs and borders
  • Additional customs duty and processing costs could impact profitability
  • Delays at borders could impact service provision, financial performance, inventory requirements and ability to meet contractual obligations
Organisational resilience and operations
  • Changes to delivery schedules, inventory storage and distribution channels may be required
  • Lead times to make changes (e.g.) to contracts, suppliers and distribution networks, will need to be factored into decision timeframes

Tax focus areas

  • Impact of border delays on supply
  • Rules of origin for products
  • Product standards/approvals (e.g. Pharma drug approvals)
  • Supplier readiness assessment
  • Splitting EU and UK sourcing and supply
  • New/amended supply chains will require tax configuration
