Wilkins Kennedy highlight some issues and possible solutions for businesses trading in and/or moving goods.

Although the final outcome and timeline for BREXIT is uncertain, there are some steps businesses can consider in their BREXIT planning.  A “hard BREXIT” with no deal on 29 March 2019 or at the end of the Transitional Period would have an immediate impact as the old pre-1993 Customs Borders will effectively be restored.
