Brexit Has Happened. Start As You Mean To Go On

Online Workshops


The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020, and the Transition Period came to an end on 31 December 2020.

It is vital that businesses take action now to adapt to the new border operating environment that came into effect o1 January 2021.

Until the new border operating model was published on 12 July last year, we could only speculate on how goods would be controlled at our borders in the future.  It’s now clear – businesses need new skills, and must deal with a higher level of administration than before.

This new series of workshops themed “Brexit has happened. Start as you mean to go on” has been designed to help you manage the impact of Brexit on your EU and non-EU business and help you plan for the future.
