Brexit – Are you ready for change?

Since the Brexit vote, suddenly everyone is talking about Customs.  No longer will businesses have the luxury of moving goods freely between Ireland and the UK.  The future is uncertain but what is certain is that we can help your business to prepare for the change.  There are regimes to mitigate the duty cost and reducing the supply chain disruption but the time to take action is now.

So, what do you need to do?

  • review business flows that may be affected.
  • assess the potential supply chain cost impact.
  • review updates required to software and IT systems.

Most importantly, you need to contact our team of customs experts for advice

We are now welcoming expressions of interest to our Customs and VAT Brexit Seminar on 23rd May where you can meet our VAT and Customs team to explore the potential Indirect Tax implications of the movement of goods cross-border between Ireland and the UK following Brexit.  The seminar will cover Customs and VAT topics as follows:
