The consequences of a no deal Brexit will affect all areas of business especially those engaged in international trade and supply chains. Under a no-deal Brexit, the UK will leave the EU Customs Union and become a third country for EU import/export purposes.

This will mean that trade between the UK and the remaining EU member states will be subject to duties and customs procedural requirements.
International data transfers. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, then it would by default become a ‘third country’ for the purposes of transferring EEA personal data to the UK. UK businesses would therefore need to meet additional safeguards before the personal data can be transferred from the EEA to the UK to avoid fines.


On this edition of Business Connections Live, Linda Bazant will explain:

  • Proposed import and export processes after Brexit
  • Applying for an EORI number
  • Accounting for import VAT
  • Help from HMRC
  • Additional safeguards when transferring personal data from the EEA.

Learn the business fundamentals on:

  • The needed  level of preparedness prior to leaving the EU on continuing international trade
  • Knowledge of how to complete customs paperwork or where to go to for help
  • Compliance with HMRC requirements
  • Ensuring that all contracts have been updated with regard to the transfer of EEA personal date to the UK
