The clock is ticking…
With Brexit hitting almost every headline since the result of June 2016’s referendum, everyone has wondered how this will impact their lives; none more so than the British business community. The rising levels of uncertainty since Brexit – along with its influence on the economy, regulations and industrial developments – have understandably resulted in many clients reaching out to us to talk about how their business proceeds towards an unpredictable future.
Of course, we are not psychic. The news and developments regarding the Brexit negotiations seem to change on a daily basis, but the importance of budget control has never been so prevalent. This helps further cement the importance of seeking genuine expertise in the areas where you are spending, in order to ensure you are in the best possible position as we count down 11pm on March 29 next year.
Considering the demand for advice from our clients, we have compiled this paper to help clarify the major issues so that businesses may plan accordingly. We explore some recent concerns including the future of foreign workers, the pressures on supply chains and the evolution of trade and national productivity.
What we’ve learnt (but known all along!) is that preparation is vital; from streamlining costs and infrastructure to creating strong supply chains and logistical plans, organisations will see themselves better equipped to face our future, whatever that may be.
