International Trade Survey Results

International Trade Survey Results

  • Monday 6 December
  • Open to all

Against a backdrop of Brexit and Covid disruption, manufacturers are experiencing huge increases in the cost of labour, energy and raw materials.

This session will present the results of our latest International Trade Survey and reveal the impact that the past year has had on trader confidence, investment plans, new markets and getting goods into and out of the UK.

Just what impact has the TCA had on exports to the EU and what confidence have traders gained in expanding their global reach under the UK Free Trade Agreements?

Brexit, what Brexit?

Brexit, what Brexit?

  • Thursday 9 December
  • Open to all

With the ending of 'Staged Customs Controls' on 31st December, what impact will a fully controlled UK border have on traders.

For lots of traders, the UK departure from the EU customs union has brought little change. Supplies have continued to arrive at their business, there has been no real increase in paperwork and their EU suppliers seem happy to keep delivering.

If this is your business our webinar will cover what records you should have kept but didn't. What customs entries you should have made but missed. And more importantly, what action you can take now to avoid future fines and penalties.

Full on Brexit!

Full on Brexit!

  • Tuesday 14 December
  • Open to all

Staged Customs Controls' end on 31st December, meaning that the free flow of goods that has prevailed since Brexit Day will come to an end on 31/12/22.

All EU imports will need to be accounted for with a full customs declaration. There will be new sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) arrangements, new pre-notification deadlines and a new inspection regime. This will apply to all EU exports and imports.

This webinar will discuss the changes and what practical steps you can take to reduce the possibility that your goods will be delayed at the UK border as well as what economic impact we should expect from the full implementation of the Trade Continuity Agreement

BCC RESPONDS TO LATEST ONS INFLATION FIGURES

Commenting on the inflation statistics for October 2021, published today by the Office for National Statistics, Head of Economics at the BCC Suren Thiru, said: “The latest data confirms that inflation is on a significant upward trajectory. “October’s upturn was largely driven by rising household energy costs following the increase in Ofgem’s energy price cap, rising fuel prices and the partial reversal of the VAT reductions for hospitality and tourism which drove up restaurant and hotel prices."

BCC RESPONDS TO LATEST ONS LABOUR MARKET FIGURES

Record job vacancies suggest that the chronic staff shortages encountered by businesses are intensifying and this could derail the recovery by forcing firms into a more long-lasting decline in their operating capacity.
