Download Brexit checklists

There will be many areas of business affected by Brexit. the LEP and region's Chambers of Commerce have undertaken research to understand how prepared businesses are. The research (conducted in December 2018) shows:

  • 61% of respondents have devoted management time to considering the implications of Brexit on their business, and 45% say they have mapped their supplier and customer base and considered how changes to the trade relationship could affect them.
  • 10% of businesses have made changes to their strategies or operational model already in response to Brexit. 15% are planning to make changes prior to the UK leaving in March, with the same proportion planning changes post-March.
  • However, 60% of businesses are not planning any changes.
