London Businesses Urged to Prepare for End of Transition
With less than 100 days left until the end of the post-EU exit transition period, businesses across the capital are being urged to prepare for the implications. The call to action comes from London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, London’s Local Chambers of Commerce, Rajesh Agrawal: Deputy Mayor of London for Business, London Councils, and the City of London Corporation.
The implications won’t just affect businesses that trade or do business in the EU – all businesses need to assess the impact on their: staff employment, business travel, exporting, importing, international trade paperwork, costs, logistics, data protection, e-commerce, accounting and auditing, public procurement, intellectual property and taxation. Firms also need to consider impacts on their immediate supply chain.
To help London businesses in their preparations London Chamber of Commerce and Industry has launched an EU Exit Hub – visit the Hub for information on the key steps to take now.
