Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

What does Brexit really mean for you and your clients?

Date: 21 September 2020 13:30 - 16:30

Type: Audit Assurance and Financial Reporting, Course, Legal and Regulatory, Tax

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

This course is aimed at equipping the practitioner in the North East with the right tools to deal with Brexit whether their clients are directly affected or not!

Whilst it is clear we will be leaving the EU, by the time of the Course, the position should be clearer and we should be in the process of negotiating free trade agreements. Initially this will be with just the EU but what about access to all those countries like Canada and Japan where we currently use the EU free trade agreements?

Event information

The course is not going to be a detailed analysis of customs duties but will look at what this will all mean for your clients (or you if you are in industry) in terms of what consequences will it have on margins and processes. Whilst few clients actually import or export directly, most will have items either in their supply chain or sales chain which mean that tariffs could indirectly hit them. Clearly, we will look at direct exporters and importers and what they need to be doing. We will look at the VAT implications too!

We also need to think about the “quick fixes” on VAT which were brought in from 1 January 2020 by the EU which will hit our clients who are already trading in the EU.

However, we need to look at some of the many other aspects – from immigration proposals – what will that do to labour supplies, to “should we incorporate any operations abroad”, “will us leaving the EU affect dividends and royalties”, and “what about EU adopted IFRS”?

The course also needs to look at what a client ought to think about if they are thinking of expanding and therefore of setting up abroad.
