The biggest Brexit business questions answered
As one of the lead Chambers of Commerce in the UK we are closely monitoring Brexit negotiations and aim to provide clarity on any proposed changes and how they might impact on British businesses.
Matt Griffith, Director of Policy at Business West and an experienced business adviser with expertise in trade negotiations and economy policy, heads up an experienced team ready to help you make sense of the changes as they happen and provide answers to the questions you may have.
To ensure we address as many business-related Brexit issues as possible we invite you to register with Trading Through Brexit and ask our team your questions. We'll aim to answer as many questions as possible; your questions will also help to shape the content we develop and provide to help businesses. Once you've registered your interest, we will share regular updates with you to help you navigate your business through Brexit and beyond.
For instance, you may want to know what new documentation may apply to your business, how to ensure your products aren’t delayed at ports post Brexit or how to conduct a risk assessment.
We have also produced a video series to help keep businesses informed; for example, our first video shares the three key issues you need to consider in order to determine how at risk your business is when we leave Europe. Presented by Matt, he helps you identify if your business might be at risk and what to do about it.
Sign up to receive our regular 'Brexit Update' email and we'll keep you posted with insights and information to help you trade successfully through Brexit.
Is there a simple checklist I can use to help me understand the steps I should take to prepare for Brexit?
Time spent thinking through the changes that Brexit may bring to your firm could yield real dividends in future. While the final settlement between the UK and the European Union is still to be negotiated, there are steps that businesses of all sizes can take now to start planning ahead.
The Chambers provide a simple checklist that you can download and print. This has been prepared in response to the findings from recent surveys, which suggest that a significant number of firms are either watching and waiting – or taking no action at all. We hope you find it useful as a basis for business planning at both operational and Board level. Download it here:
