How can the manufacturing industry prepare for Brexit?

How can the manufacturing industry prepare for Brexit?

Monday, 20 July 2020

Whilst businesses continue to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, we mustn’t forget that we’re less than six months away from the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has no doubt prompted management teams to review all aspects of their business, not least their supply chain. Now is a good time to take this analysis, and perform a second review with Brexit in mind, to make sure that any potential issues are resolved to prevent significant delays to lead times.

A key part to supply chain management is the data management system. Irrespective of a Brexit deal or a no-deal Brexit, goods will need to be declared and customs procedures applied. By having a suitable reporting system, the quality of data used as part of Brexit planning will make sure that future financial projections are as accurate as possible.

At Larking Gowen, our specialist Brexit team has expertise on the transfer of goods and services post 31 December.
