EPISODE 7: BREXIT – THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE INDIFFERENT

Brexit has finally happened, and whether you were for it or against it, the way companies in the UK work with others within the EU has changed. So, what are the challenges and the benefits of the changes?
 

We speak to Allie Rennison, Head of EU and Trade Policy at the Institute of Directors about the feedback she’s had so far from the business community. Plus Iain Rowlands, Executive Director of Woodland Group, gives an insight into how Brexit is impacting the logistics sector, and Ian Marrow, VAT Director at Rickard Luckin provides an overview of some of the issues organisations need to be aware of from VAT point of view.
