Government research shows that the majority of businesses that solely export to the EU are unprepared for a no-deal Brexit. While we still don’t know exactly what Brexit will mean for businesses, or even when it will happen, your own company can’t afford to be in the same boat once the UK leaves the EU.
If this does come to pass, the way your business sells goods within the EU will change overnight. The customs procedures you currently use will become redundant and you may instead find yourself trading under World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules. And unless your business complies with these regulations, you’ll almost certainly be prevented from exporting to EU countries at all. Follow the steps below to ensure you can still trade overseas post-Brexit.
