Giles O’Neill, Manager of the Brexit Unit with Enterprise Ireland said: “It is critical that Irish companies trading with the UK have the processes in place that will help them to minimise disruption to their businesses in 2021 and beyond. In September this year, Enterprise Ireland undertook research which found that one in five companies were still understanding what they needed to do to prepare for Brexit.
“While many companies have taken action, many others still need to prepare for what will be key challenges, such as customs and logistics. Enterprise Ireland’s ‘Brexit Customs Briefings’ will provide those companies with practical information and guidance on the vital steps they need to undertake before 01 January.”
