Brexit Advisory Sessions

Local Enterprise Office Monaghan has launched Brexit Advisory sessions to help Monaghan Businesses ensure they are fully prepared for Brexit as the deadline grows ever closer. We are encouraging businesses to be pro-active in their preparations and have the assistance of expert Business Advisors to support you. These one-on-one mentoring sessions are designed to help businesses plan and take immediate action to effectively mitigate the risks and avail of the opportunities that Brexit poses, increasing a business's resilience and competitiveness, irrespective of the outcome.

LEO Monaghan are encouraging companies to develop their capabilities in three specific operational areas:

Supply Chain and Logistics

What if your key suppliers are based in the UK and their costs increase 20-30% due to potential new excise duties? Understanding and reviewing your sourcing arrangements to reduce costs, increase efficiency and identify alternative suppliers will assist your business.

Labour Mobility

As with many businesses based in the county, a proportion of your staff might need to cross the border to simply get to and from work in the morning and for others who work at different locations throughout the day, this might become and issue. Will your staff retain their entitlements to pensions, social welfare ect? Will staff need to carry passports? The answers to these and any other questions on the topic could be answered by talking to an expert in the field. 

Customs, Taxation & VAT

Do you purchase supplies or move goods across to Northern Ireland and/or the UK? If so, you need to be prepared. There are options from Revenue that are available to make the customs process more efficient. With the deadline looming ever closer for Brexit, it is time to make sure your business is fully protected and that you are aware of how it might be effected. Some areas to consider are:

  • How to classify goods
  • How to establish the origin of goods
  • How to qualify for free Trade Agreements
  • Complete Import and Export Entry
  • Terms of Trade
  • Obtaining authorization for Deferred Payment of Customs and VAT
  • Customs Warehousing
  • Import VAT issues
  • Impact on cashflow within businesses
