You need to act now!

The new rules affect businesses and travel to the EU. Make sure you are ready for the end of the Brexit transition.

This one-day online conference will be full of practical information and advice on what businesses need to do now in order to be prepared for the changes on the 1st January 2021.

Do you have questions that you would like to ask the experts?

You will also be guided through the jargon and complexities involved to ensure you understand what change is required.
