Chamber of Solutions – International
19th January @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
About this Event
This FREE Chamber of Solutions event takes a close look at the many needs of businesses as we pass the transition deadline and move into the new trading context, as the United Kingdom leaves the EU’s Single Market and Customs Union.
Whether we have an FTA with our EU partners or not there is much for all globally-trading businesses to understand and to inform their future trading prospects. Several temporarily-staged easings of the implementation of changes around border controls, customs declarations and processes have been announced by Government, however clarity, advice and sharing insights may still be needed to ensure successful post-Brexit trading arrangements.
Amongst a range of solutions this event will help to provide the most up-to-date clarity on the known and emerging picture around customs procedures and documentation, duties, VAT, rules of origin, labelling, and dispute resolutions.
It is about providing and sharing awareness of the needs and impacts on your business together with your supplier and customer relationships. This is especially critical for businesses in Solent and Hampshire because of our strengths in trading internationally and world-class ports. We want you to be able to seize the global challenges and opportunities. If like many firms you have not had first-hand experience as yet, this is your chance to hear the insights and experiences of others to help review your own business plans.
The Chamber of Solutions supports individuals and businesses with ambition to:
• Get a clear understanding of the changing procedures
• Make a success of the post transition world
• Develop trading opportunities
The specialist Chamber of Solutions panel will provide focus on:
• People, employment, travel and immigration
• Customs procedures, documentation and duties
• Tax, VAT, finance and banking
• Data, labelling, disputes and regulation
• Logistics, advice and funding
The event will address your challenges, allowing you to share your experiences across the Chamber of Solutions community. It is clear that no single specialist has all the answers, and so sharing with fellow businesses can provide some practical insights. Chamber of Solutions is your problem solver for your business challenges.
