Is your business ready for Brexit?

The UK has left the EU and is now in a transition period.

New rules come into place from 1 January 2021.

Leaving the EU will have an affect on:

– Importing and exporting goods

– Travelling to and from Europe

– Employing EU citizens

– Protecting data and intellectual property

The NMTF has a “Business Ready for Brexit” guide to assist you.

Helping the market industry to be business-ready for Brexit!
