Brexit – nine areas of potential impact for your business.

  • UK market dynamics – possible market contraction; buy British campaigns
  • Currency – impact on profits; delayed decision making due to uncertainty
  • Customers – impact on customers leading to challenges and opportunities
  • Competition – expect new and increased competition
  • Sourcing – impact on cost, certainty and quality; dependence on UK distributors
  • Transport and logistics – established transport routes may no longer be optimal
  • Regulations and standards – may change for exporting to and importing from UK
  • Customs, tariffs and taxation – may see an increase in administration, cost and time
  • Movement of people – possible restrictions


The  online tool has been designed to stimulate companies into thinking about the key areas that may be impacted in their business because of Brexit and to self-assess their level of preparedness. Using the ‘Brexit Scorecard’ online tool micro and smaller businesses can self-diagnose whether they are ready for Brexit. By answering a series of questions online under six key business pillars a comprehensive report is automatically generated which serves as a prompt and discussion document for business owner / managers to consider as part of their planning for Brexit. The report provides companies with a benchmark in terms of their level of preparedness against best practice and signposts them to a range of supports, resources and information available via Local Enterprise Offices.


The is a starting point to help businesses to begin preparing a strategy and ready their teams in terms of planning and shining a spotlight on some of the key operational areas that may be exposed.
