Brexit: It’s Not Over Yet 

Online Workshops


Since 1.1.21 trade between the EU and UK has been governed by a new Trade & Cooperation Agreement (TCA) which brought with it new import and export rules. 

To meet these rules businesses need new skills, and must deal with a higher level of administration than before.

This new series of workshops themed “Brexit: It’s Not Over Yet ” has been developed from lessons our transition team and customs experts have learnt from assisting hundreds of businesses on the front line of Brexit. The sessions address the challenges and provide real solutions. 

Packed with expert tips, time-saving tools and real life case studies to help you stay ahead of the curve.
