Johnathan Dudley, national head of manufacturing at Crowe, said the event would not just be about “what we know so far”, but also “what is still to be resolved in the UK’s future trading relationship with the EU.”

The session, in which Oldbury-based Mr Dudley will be joined by Rob Marchant, VAT and customs duty services partner, will aim to help businesses with their Brexit preparations.

Mr Dudley said: “We will be explaining the key areas of change and provide insights into how these changes can be managed.”

There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions, share details of the preparation they have undertaken and to hear from Crowe’s VAT and customs duty specialists.

Areas also covered will include the need for customs declarations, incoterms, VAT registration changes, customs aspects of sales to and from Ireland, both North and South, origin and preference, transit arrangements and customs regimes such as bonded warehousing and Returned Goods Relief.

Mr Dudley added: “There are areas and details to be confirmed, however, whether we get a deal or proceed with a no-deal exit, businesses must still be at an optimum state of preparation and ready to move quickly where flexibility and change is required nearer December 31.

“With all the disruption and issues that responding to Covid-19 have brought, there is a risk that businesses may have taken their eye off the Brexit ball in the past six months.

“There will be winners and losers when the eventual changes are finalised, but businesses owe it to themselves to be as prepared as they possibly can be, to gain advantage and win market share.”
