Brexit Awareness boot-camps will be held over the next week to address the many questions businesses are asking about Brexit.
Business Brexit Awareness Boot-Camp events are open to all businesses and are free to attend. These events will be a collaborative approach with the Local Enterprise Partnerships, County, District and Borough Councils, Town Chambers, other business organisations, local professional firms and experts.
The British Chambers of Commerce network survey of over 1,500 firms from across the country, carried out in July, found that 41% of UK businesses have not done a Brexit risk assessment. Those that trade internationally (63%) are far more likely to have carried out a risk assessment on the impact of Brexit to their business than their counterparts that trade in the UK only (35%).
The Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce, working closely with the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), is your first point of contact to understand how Brexit is going to impact your business. The Chamber have numerous resources available for companies to help them become aware of all the key issues that could, and in many instances will affect their business.
They will be running workshops on the 22nd and 28th October at Lakeside Park Hotel in Wootton. The focus on the 22nd will be International Trade, whilst People & Immigration, Regulations & Data, and Legal, Tax & VAT workshops will be held on the 28th – each with industry experts on hand to answer any questions you may have.
