On February 1 this year, Brexit was a reality. Gradually, it became increasingly clear the impact of the UK’s division on the companies and entrepreneurs in our country.
With a total export value of close to 40 billion euros, the United Kingdom (meaning England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) is among the Netherlands’ 5 most important trading partners. Consequently, the entry into force of Brexit will have an impact in several areas for companies trading with the UK, whether it is importing or exporting goods and services.
To help entrepreneurs understand the impact of Brexit on them personally, experts from Baker Tilly and MHA MacIntyre Hudson (Baker Tilly Network Partner UK) have organized webinars on Brexit where they take a hard look at what is happening. Changes and how to respond to this.
The most recent webinar discusses:
- Merchandise origin – why is it important, what are the risks, but also how do you work on the basis of examples?
- The Brexit Deal – What Does It Really Mean for Trade?
- Customs – What information and documents are required to export and import goods?
- Exports from and imports to the European Union – what are the problems with VAT and customs?
- E-commerce has changed in the European Union as of July 1, 2021
- Northern Ireland – What are the latest developments in commodity trade?
- The future – what would be the strategy for the future, the creation of an entity in the European Union?
