The UK decision to exit the EU will have direct and profound impact on businesses across the island. Whilst there is a lot that’s not known yet, there is still plenty that businesses can be doing to identify their areas of risk and opportunity post Brexit.
Planning can begin with basic questions around the freedom of movement of goods, services, people and how that impacts a business. What might the impact be if tariffs or non-tariff barriers are introduced? What is the potential tariff that could be levied on my products? Do I know what rules of origin certificates are and what they cost?
