Contingency planning for Brexit is required for Kent Businesses (with a link to official updates)?
Updated: Sep 9, 2019
Having survived two major financial events in recent years (2007 Banking Crisis & 2018 collapse of Carillion), how much will Brexit really affect Kentish businesses?
I expect the consequences of Brexit to affect larger companies first, but generally they have the resources to manage the most likely effects of Brexit, so like the collapse of Carillion I expect the effects of Brexit to be indirect, not direct, as some part of the Supply Chains are adversely affected. I also expect the impact on Kentish Small Businesses to be physical more than financial (as Operation Stack is enacted probably on a larger scale than usual) and indirect as some part of the Supply Chains are adversely affected.
So what should Kent businesses do, what can they do in advance of a moving target called Brexit ? Below is a link to Kent Prepared business forum on advice for Kentish Businesses:
