EEF has launched an online toolkit - including an exclusive ‘self-audit’ tool - to help manufacturers of all sizes navigate their way through the uncertain waters of Brexit.
The Brexit Toolkit, produced in partnership with experienced customs and export software developers, i2i infinity, addresses the key trade and customs issues British importers and exporters may face.
The self-audit tool asks manufacturers a series of questions to help tailor information to their particular sector, product and supply chain.
Users will receive a customised report summarising tariff costs and customs issues they may face.
The toolkit also shows manufacturers how to map their supply chain and entire goods flow into and out of the UK.
Namali MacKay, Trade Advisor at EEF, said:
“EEF members continue to raise their questions and concerns about what Brexit will mean for their business on a practical level. And no wonder - approximately half of UK exports and imports are to and from the EU.
“Despite lingering uncertainty over the form Brexit will take, manufacturers should start preparing in a timely and an informed manner. Come March 2019 – deal or no deal – Brexit will take effect.”
