Brexit gap analysis

If there has been one advantage to Brexit, it is a weak sterling, making UK products and services more attractive to overseas buyers. Now is a great time to export.

Nevertheless, international trade brings with it a multitude of compliance issues. Compliance issues which if ignored, can result in penalties which affect your bottom line – be they in the obvious form of disgruntled customers and fines, or the more insidious form of time consuming regulatory negotiations and fire-fighting.

We are conscious that you need to concentrate on your specialism, your business and that whilst doing that, some things – necessary but peripheral to your business - tend to take a back seat. You’re too busy doing what you do best to concentrate on dotting i’s and crossing t’s in the back office.

So allow us to do what we do best. Our audit aims to watch your back and point out areas of non-compliance and areas with potential for improvement, cost reduction or indeed cost avoidance.

We will visit your company and question appropriate staff involved in the export transaction. This will include staff in sales, the shipping department and credit control personnel. Your company will be measured against best in practice procedures. A comprehensive report will highlight those areas which need your attention

If you need our help addressing areas of weakness, we offer an ongoing support service.

Included in the price of the audit is a regulatory update service pertinent to your business.
