Brexit: Ask the expert webinar

Preparing for a No Deal Brexit

A No Deal Brexit is looking increasingly likely and we now need to prepare for a much sharper rupture from existing rules and trading terms post withdrawal March 2019.

This webinar will enable you to put your questions to and gain insight from our Brexit expert, William Bain, on contingencies retailers may want to develop as we near the exit deadline without a clear deal in place.

It will cover key issues including staffing, transit of goods, customs and regulatory checks processes, taxation and duties, data, regulatory authorisations and permits, and the integrity and efficiency of supply or sourcing chains.

  • Supply Chains: Your Route to Sustainability Jan 15 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    BRC & DP World London Gateway
    Retailers are working hard to develop and implement more environmentally friendly and sustainable practices through their direct operations.

    Ensuring this is replicated through the supply chain can help to further efficiency, increase competitive advantage and bolster retailers’ environmental credentials. However, with the reliance on third parties, embedding transparent and sustainable practices can be more complicated and harder to achieve. But there are some simple steps you can take.

    We team up with DP World London Gateway to offer case studies and top tips on the quick and low-cost things you can do to improve sustainability in your own supply chains. Plus, provide advice on the questions you should be asking and what you can expect from your suppliers.
  • Brexit: Implications for VAT and Indirect Taxes Recorded: Nov 7 2019 59 mins
    BRC & MHA MacIntyre Hudson
    With all the changes and confusion surrounding Brexit, we sit down to consider what options are still on the table with regards to VAT and indirect taxation, and the risks for retailers.

    Even though the outcome and timing of Brexit is still unclear, being fully aware of the possibilities and steps you can take to mitigate your exposure to burdensome extra red tape, effects on cashflow, and even new liability for taxation is essential for your company.

    Join William Bain, our Trade and Policy expert, and our partners at MHA, as we outline the various Brexit end scenarios still in play; and offer advice on how you can plan and prepare for the different eventualities.
  • Practical Advice On Driving Cost Efficiencies Recorded: Sep 26 2019 37 mins
    BRC and Trustly
    There are more payment methods than ever before. The costs associated with taking payments are also numerous and growing – whether it’s Merchant Service Charges, bad debt, losses, Cash-In-Transit, or related administration costs. Last year, these associated costs rose to £1.23 billion across the retail industry.

    Staying ahead of changing purchasing behaviours and technologies while managing the growing transaction costs, is now a core challenge for all UK retailers - big and small.

    Our Payments expert, alongside our partners at Trustly, will provide practical advice on how you can assess and take steps to reduce your transaction costs while optimising your payment technologies to meet business needs and customer demands.

  • The financial impact of a cyber-attack Recorded: Jun 26 2019 56 mins
    James Martin, Crime and Security Advisor, BRC & Giles Taylor, Head of Data & Cyber Security, Data Services, Lloyds Bank
    In a world of increasing digitalisation, where homes, businesses and wider infrastructure are more connected than ever, the impact associated with cyber-attacks is growing.

    Cyber threat to business should be taken seriously, The BRC Crime Survey 2019 reported that between 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018 the combined cost of spending on crime prevention and losses from crime to the industry was £1.9 billion, and although retailers are spending 17% more on cybersecurity than last year, nearly 80% of the retailers surveyed have seen an increase in the number of attacks and/or breaches.

    BRC and Lloyds are coming together to support BRC members to understand and manage their financial exposure to potential cyber-attacks.

    This webinar will discuss the evolution of the cyber threat and will help prepare retailers on the steps they can take not only to prepare but how to both respond and recover financially and operationally from an attack.

  • Brexit Webinar: Tech’s new frontier for cross-border trade Recorded: Feb 5 2019 46 mins
    BRC, DP World London Gateway
    Every day billions of pounds worth of goods flows through the United Kingdom on time-critical journeys to distant places around the world. With Brexit looming and uncertainty still on the future scope of trade arrangements between the UK and EU, one thing is clear; technology will play a much bigger role in customs and logistics in the coming decades.

    Better integrating new technology into the supply chain will limit the time getting goods in and out of ports and other border entry and exit points and will provide a solution to some of the challenges around higher consumer demand for food and non-food products.

    This webinar, with our partners at DP World, will set out the new ways in which technology can help companies transiting goods from the EU and other countries and how to deal with the regulatory and customs challenges that exiting the EU will present from March.
