UK transition event: Keep Your Business Moving - what Oxfordshire SMEs need to know about the EU exit
Get your business EU exit ready with tailored guidance to navigate the changes and keep your business moving
The UK has left the European Union (EU) and Oxfordshire businesses must act now in-light of the changes. There are actions your business should take now to ensure you are in the best position to operate in a post-transition economy - is your business ready?
OxLEP Business is here to help you prepare for the new landscape, minimise disruption to your business and take advantage of new opportunities arising.
Join this free virtual event, designed to help you in identifying what actions you need to take to ensure your business can continue to operate in a post-EU economy’. Our experienced speakers will cover employment, trade, intellectual property, travelling to and from the EU and more.
WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THIS VIRTUAL EVENT?
Your business should act now to ensure you are following the new trading rules which came into effect this month. This virtual event is designed to guide your business across four key areas:
1. Employing EU nationals in the UK, or Employing UK nationals in your European Office
Free movement came to an end on 31 December 2020. The UK has made changes to its immigration rules and these changes are likely to affect both EU nationals and other non-UK nationals working in the UK. If you employ UK nationals in a European Office, they will also be affected. Learn how to support your staff and encourage them to take action.
2. Trading with EU companies, the UK Global Tariff, imports and exports
Trading across borders has changed significantly. This includes changes to cross border trade documentation and the UK Global Tariff (which has replaced the EU’s Common External Tariff). Hear the latest on UK-EU trading rules and agreements. Learn how to identify which of these changes are most relevant for your business and/or your supply chain.
3. Intellectual Property (IP) and EU Data
Rules governing the management of intellectual property (IP) and data have changed. This section of the webinar will cover areas such as data transfers, websites, domain names, technology providers, and IP rights. Discover how to secure your IP and how your business practices may need to change.
4. Travelling to-and-from the EU
As freedom of movement has ended, business travel has also changed. The UK has also made changes to its immigration rules. This will affect travel to and from the EU, as well as living and working in the UK, for both EU nationals and other non-UK nationals. Explore the key steps you need to take and how you can support your staff or business partners.
