Brexit Community

The impact of Brexit, whether hard, soft or no deal, is enormous for the industry and the consumers it serves. It is essential that retail and consumers get the best possible Brexit deal, in terms of customs, border controls, VAT, and new regulatory structures.

Through the Brexit Community, we help shape the Government’s strategy, help you understand and prepare for the implications, and protect the interests of consumers.
