As the countdown of UK’s exit from the EU moves into the final stages, businesses need to be fully prepared for a transition. The scope of the UK’s disengagement are similar, albeit in a different manner, to the Y2K problem two decades back. The impact on businesses will become a lot more clear, immediately after 29 March 2019, when UK officially ceases to be a member of the EU. However, there is consensus about one aspect – businesses need to be prepared with a slew of changes as the UK leaves the single market, and this needs to be concluded before the deadline.

Brexit Business Consulting offers a strategic overview of business in the post Brexit scenario
Companies that import goods as part of their business activities will require more liquidity as VAT may will begin to be levied at EU borders. This is a huge difference from present practice where trade within between businesses within EU nations is exempt from VAT. Therefore, businesses need to be better prepared with the required funds. Similarly, every single contract has to be renegotiated as existing contracts do not incorporate the clauses that are necessary for dealing with the new EU and UK customs border. Here are immediate effects of Brexit explained in detail.
Reports suggest that if all EU imports need to be declared, the number of custom forms submitted to HMRC will increase five foldfivefold, because of the need to provide proof of origin. With DNS Brexit Business Consulting, organizations can wade through the complex procedures with a proper action plan in place, right on time for Brexit.
