Why the Brexit impact matters?

The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) warned in September  that customs delays at the border could have a significant impact on UK companies and their suppliers.

The CIPS found that one in 10 companies believed they would go bankrupt because of customs delays of only 10-30min.

There have also been news of companies stockpiling goods and the CIPS found 24% of companies surveyed were looking to do so.

Brexit timeliness

The UK is expected to leave the EU block on 29 March next year and the EU summit next week (17-18 October) is the likely date the EU and UK negotiations are to agree on a  so called Brexit deal.

Both the UK government and the EU have made positive statements around an imminent Brexit deal in recent days.

An emergency EU summit could still be scheduled for November if the two sides fail to agree a divorce bill.

However, the UK House of Commons and leaders of most EU member states still need to confirm the deal reached by the two sides early next year before it can come into effect.

If a no-deal Brexit is to go ahead little is known what happens post 29 March 2019, however the UK Government has issued some documentation on the possible scenario in recent weeks.
