As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and the Chamber of Commerce network is helping businesses to consider how they can plan for the future.
Since the EU referendum in June 2016, business communities across the UK have faced unprecedented levels of uncertainty about trading conditions in the future. While the final outcome of the Brexit process remains unclear, Chambers are encouraging companies of all sizes and sectors to consider how they may be affected.
In order to help companies think about how their operations could be impacted, the BCC has created a Business Brexit Checklist, outlining key areas of operations where firms should assess what could change after the UK's departure from the EU.
In the midst of high levels of political noise and turbulence, the BCC has also created an FAQ to distil the Brexit Agreement and to help businesses understand what it means in practical terms, and a Risk Register to assess progress on 24 business-critical issues.
Brexit involves a lot of uncertainty and many firms need to continue to think prudently about how the changes ahead may affect their operations. The Chamber Network's Business Brexit Checklist offers a helpful starting point, particularly for those firms that have not already begun to plan.
