Whether or not a last minute trade deal is agreed between now and Christmas, it’s likely that the way you conduct business with your partners in the EU will change after 31st December 2020.

This doesn’t mean that delays and significantly increased costs are inevitable – but the more prepared you are for potential changes today, the less impact there will be on your supply chain as the UK completes its exit from the EU.
