A common question we hear from our members, “How can I plan for Brexit when I don’t know what it looks like?”
There is no simple answer. we know businesses need to prepare for a range of potential outcomes. Given we currently don’t know the final outcome of Brexit – and we won’t for some time – planning activity just now must be flexible and adaptive.
Scotland’s enterprise and skills agencies are urging all businesses in Scotland to continue to actively prepare for a no-deal Brexit on 31 October 2019. Making sure you have the right contingency plans in place, deal or no deal, to protect your business, supply chain and customers.
