Goodwille announces partnership with ECUS – and other things we have been doing

Since the result of the Brexit referendum in 2016, Goodwille has been working together with clients, preparing  for the day where Brexit might happen. The preparations continue as the situation develops and more details concerning the British withdrawal from the EU become clearer. In this article we announce our most recent partnership, ensuring that we can help our clients’ businesses thrive in this period of uncertainty.

Building and maintaining partnerships

It is important for us to ensure we minimise the issues of importing and exporting goods in the event of a no-deal Brexit. We are therefore excited to announce our partnership with ECUS, a Swedish company founded by Peter Jacobsson, that specialises in facilitating trade and customs.  The partnership between Goodwille and Ecus ensures we have a plan for the longer-term logistics of moving goods between the EU and the UK.

Moreover, Goodwille continues to work closely together with North Star Law, for immigration expertise, taking the work out of staff movements cross-borders.

Finally, Goodwille will be handling GDPR and VAT changes internally and through our expert network.

Monitoring the risk of no-deal Brexit

One might think that a no-deal is unlikely given the facts that Boris Johnson is lacking a majority in Parliament, and because of the law recently in place to prevent a no-deal Brexit. However, as we have all learnt from the last years in British politics, nothing is impossible. A no-deal Brexit is thus less of a risk than it was a couple of months ago, but it remains a risk.

Keeping up-to-date on relevant updates from HM Government

Since Boris Johnson came to power, we have seen more detail from the government on how to prepare for Brexit. Goodwille encourages all clients to continue to monitor the British government’s website for information relevant to your business.
