Amidst all that has been going on this year, it would be easy to forget that Brexit is still scheduled to take place on the 1st of January 2021 when the transition period for the UK leaving the EU officially ends.
Though negotiations are ongoing, it is looking more and more likely that we will be moving forward with a no-deal Brexit which means that businesses will need to prepare themselves for the repercussions of such an agreement.
WHAT DOES A NO-DEAL BREXIT MEAN FOR BUSINESSES?
There is still a lot of uncertainty regarding what a no-deal Brexit means, especially for UK businesses.
But one thing that is almost certain, is that it will be far more difficult to transport goods between the UK and EU countries.
UK businesses who source their products, materials or ingredients from European countries are likely to face higher tariffs and longer checks at the border which will increase costs and cause shipping delays for businesses.
Supermarkets rely on a free flow of goods from Europe and wider world markets to enable them to stock their shelves with fruit, vegetables, and other food whilst UK car manufacturers source many of their components from around the world.
Evidently, almost every business in every industry will be affected by Brexit in some capacity.
As a result, if businesses don’t prepare, they may be unable to fulfil the demand for certain products at the speed in which they normally do and end up with a lot of goods being out of stock which will have a huge impact on their revenue, especially if consumers start to go to competitors who have prepared for this event.
WHY DO BUSINESSES NEED NO-DEAL BREXIT STORAGE?
One way to prepare for such a disruption to your business is to begin stockpiling whatever it is you need from abroad before the end of the transition period whilst there are no changes to taxes or border checks.
It is being reported that warehouse space is limited in the food and drink industry as businesses have already started to stockpile in time for Brexit in the new year.
Hence, in order to safeguard your business, you should start investing in warehouse storage before Brexit so that you can start stockpiling too.
