The knowledge we gained at the clinic enabled us to take some immediate action to prepare for Brexit. This included working more closely with our critical suppliers, as well as sourcing European components directly from Europe. These actions will make us more efficient by streamlining our sourcing arrangements and reducing costsNicola Lawless
Attending the Brexit Advisory Clinic was invaluable to our company as it gave us an opportunity to listen to, discuss and evaluate our company’s specific ‘Brexit’ challenges with financial and logistics experts within SME’s sector. The meetings provided us with confidence that the commercial and financial decisions that we have taken to date are both timely and appropriate in response to our company’s exposure to Brexit. More importantly however, the meetings specifically identified a customs compliance challenge, that we previously were unaware of, that will arise post Brexit.Cathal Doherty
