Brexit Q&A: How can my business manage post-Brexit risks?

08 March 2019

The key to navigating Brexit for any business is planning.

Right now, despite the uncertainty around what Brexit may or may not look like, all businesses (whether they trade directly with the remaining 27 EU member states or not) should be considering what areas of their business could be affected by Brexit (in a deal or no-deal scenario) and identifying any risks that may impact on those business areas.

Each business is different, and so there is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach that can apply to all of Gloucestershire’s businesses, but a good starting point for any business is to think about the impact of changing market conditions (such as reduced consumer confidence, exchange rate fluctuation and inflation).

Businesses can then use that information to formulate plans to mitigate those potential risks and, when the clock strikes 11:00pm on 29 March 2019, implement those plans.
