Business Brexit Checklist

Business Brexit ChecklistThis checklist has been created to help you consider the changes that Brexit may bring to your company, and to help business planning at both operational and Board levels.

While some companies are planning for the challenges and opportunities ahead, Chambers of Commerce believe that all firms, not just those directly and immediately affected, should be undertaking a Brexit 'health check' and a broader test of existing business plans. Time spent thinking through the changes that Brexit may bring to your firm could yield real dividends in the future.

There are steps that businesses of all sizes can take to start planning ahead:

  • Have you/ your management team devoted time to considering the potential consequences of Brexit, direct or indirect, on your businesses?
  • If you have one, have you consulted with your Board of Directors on Brexit, or scheduled an opportunity to do so?
  • Have you mapped your supplier and customer base and considered how changes in the UK-EU trade relationship could affect them?
  • Have you checked to see if your sector is included in the planning notices issued by the UK Government and European Commission? Find out more here and here.
