Things You need to know about Brexit


Thursday 15th August

Are you ready for Brexit?

Brexit is less than 3 months away!

And all businesses need to understand how Brexit might impact their business and to take steps to mitigate any impact that Brexit might have.

And The Growth Hub will make sure that you have all the information you need to keep your business growing.

To help you get ready the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the West Midlands Combined Authority,  has produced a free online toolkit which will assess your readiness and produce a personalised report for your business packed with hints and tips and advice to help your business get ready. To access the online tool click here

In addition the Department for International Trade can will connect you with an expert to make sure you can access the help and advice you might want. You can contact the DIT here: https://www.great.gov.uk/eu-exit-news/contact

Finally should we leave the EU without a deal, any businesses trading with EU will require an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number to move goods into or out of the EU. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will use this number to identify you and collect duty on your goods.

You may have increased costs and delays if you do not get an EORI number. For example, if HMRC cannot clear your goods you may have to pay storage fees.
If you do not already have an EORI number you should apply now even if you don’t use it https://www.gov.uk/eori
