Shannon Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with PwC are delighted to invite you to attend our Brexit webinar
With the continuing uncertainty with respect to Brexit and whether the EU and UK can finalise an agreement on their future trading relationship, this webinar will highlight the issues that your business needs to consider and act on before year end. Irrespective of what is agreed in the coming days, post Brexit the UK will become a third country and from 31st December 2020, goods moving between Europe and the UK or via the GB landbridge will be subject to customs control.
The majority of goods traded between Ireland and the European continent are transported by road/sea using ferry services via Great Britain (the ‘landbridge’) or direct to the continent. This will likely lead to delays at UK ports. To help businesses navigate the customs and supply chain challenges associated with Brexit, the webinar will discuss ‘Day 1 readiness’ challenges and actions designed to ensure goods continue to cross borders. Furthermore, we will address the use of available reliefs and simplifications that will reduce costs, generate efficiencies in your supply chain and minimise risk.
John O’Loughlin, PwC Ireland’s Global Trade and Customs Partner, will provide his insights into the current state of play regarding the future trading relationship, what companies are already doing and what are the key areas businesses need to focus on to continue trading successfully with, in or through the UK.
Willie Wixted, CEO of ABC Nutritionals, will discuss what this successful nutrition business is doing in terms of their very important export markets, what he sees as the key challenges and how they are dealing with same.
Eoin Gavin, Managing Director, Eoin Gavin Transport, will discuss the impact of the logistical business for trade in Ireland Europe and Ireland UK post Brexit.
