We know that change is going to take place from the 1st of January 2021, businesses need to prepare themselves for these changes the best they can. By being prepared businesses can continue to trade internationally after the end of 2020.

If your company trades goods anywhere in the world, new border controls that start when the EU Transition period ends will mean that you MUST prepare for change NOW.

Change is inevitable as we will leave the single market, trade agreements we have now may be lost and others won, and our border and customs arrangements will be different from the way they operate today.

Whether you have previously prepared for no deal or not, the environment for traders has changed and recent announcements from UK government mean change is more certain than ever. So, if you import or export, there are just 23 weeks to get ready for new systems and processes critical to your business.

Liam Smyth, Director of Trade Facilitation at the British Chambers of Commerce is a customs and trade expert, member of HMRC Joint Customs Consultative Committee, participates in a number of Government Expert trade Advisory Groups and represents British Chambers at the International Chambers Certificate of Origin Council. He is also a Director of Chamber Customs, a customs brokering service operated by Chambers of Commerce.

During the webinar Liam will:

  • provide insight and comment on the new UK Border Operating Model;
  • advise on the actions traders need to take now;
  • signpost funding opportunities for trader readiness; and
  • discuss prospects for future trade.
