As the UK prepares for change at the end of the transition period and the move to a wider international trading landscape, the fluidity of EU and global supply chains will be of particular focus for many businesses.
Traditional supply chains focus on three flows; product, information and financial. They can be affected by a range of factors including the availability of materials, industrial variables, economic uncertainty, currency fluctuations and the need to consider working business capital in order to meet any new statutory changes but also to maintain agile and flexible supply chains.
This webinar, co-hosted alongside moneycorp, will focus on cross-border international supply chains and will cover the following four key areas:
Foreign Exchange (Fortex)
Banking & Finance
We will include steps which you can take now across these four areas to identify and realise unused opportunities for cost reductions and flexibility of cash-flow, to allow you to efficiently meet the demands of your suppliers and customers by identifying options which make sense for your business.
Now is the time to consider what alternatives are available beyond the traditional routes to compliment what may already be your standard practice, ready to respond to change to grow and transform your business.
This webinar will run for an hour and half and following the session, there will be the opportunity to ask our panel questions. If you would like to join our webinar, please register here or click on the button below. If you have issues accessing our webinar, please contact Leanne Green.

What will the new normal look like, especially for those involved in providing Professional Services?
This week, the Government published the new Border Operating Model which will take effect from 1 January 2021. This document follows the announcement on 12 June that rather than putting in place full border controls on EU movements, the UK will introduce a revised three stage approach.
As the country begins to come out of lockdown, the next crucial step is to get the economy moving. With this in mind, the Chancellor announced the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme.
Speaking to many in the arts, there was a collective despair that the Government would not be offering any assistance to beleaguered theatres, museums, music venues, galleries and heritage sites across the UK. As the list of venues closing, entering administration and redundancies grew the loss to the cultural economy seemed too large to calculate...
The Chancellor has announced a temporary cut to the rate of VAT from 20% to 5% which will be welcomed by Britain's hospitality sector, clearly hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 Pandemic and associated ‘lockdown’ measures.
