The UK’s impending departure from the European Union will bring change for businesses of every size and sector.
While some companies are already planning for the challenges and opportunities ahead, Chambers of Commerce believe that all firms – not just those directly and immediately affected – should be undertaking a Brexit ‘health check’, and a broader test of existing business plans.
Time spent thinking through the changes that Brexit may bring to your firm could yield real dividends in future. While the final settlement between the UK and the European Union is still to be negotiated, there are steps that businesses of all sizes can take now to start planning ahead.
This checklist has been prepared in response to BCC survey findings, which suggest that a significant number of firms are either watching and waiting – or taking no action at all. We hope you find it useful as a basis for business planning at both operational and Board level. Below are the key areas in which you should consider possible changes, and resources which can help you plan.
Your firm doesn’t have to navigate Brexit alone. Contact your local accredited Chamber of Commerce to find out how your Chamber can support you.
