No-Deal Brexit Webinar

What would ‘No-Deal’ mean for your competitiveness? Are you developing a contingency plan?

The Andersons Centre is running a one-off webinar in September, focusing on the implications for the agri-food sector of the UK leaving the EU in March 2019 without a comprehensive deal. Click here to book.

The likelihood of this scenario has increased in recent weeks as the UK Government remains beset by divisions and the EU sticks to its mantra of ‘no cherry-picking’.  Whilst an agreement still remains the likeliest outcome, prudent businesses will ‘hope for the best but prepare for the worst’. 

The Andersons Centre has already helped a number of businesses with their no-deal preparations.  This webinar is being run to give a wider range of organisations an introduction to some of the key issues and the measures they might adopt.  The agenda for the webinar is as follows;


  • Introduction and Timelines
  • Current Trade Flows
  • Main Impacts
    • Tariffs
    • Non-Tariff Barriers
    • Tariff Rates Quotas (TRQs)
    • Access to existing EU free-trade agreements and scope for new UK trade deals
  • Trade Process Mapping
    • Steps required to trade with EU if UK is a ‘third country’
    • Implication for businesses
  • Sectoral Impacts
    • Effect on key farm sectors and implications for profitability, input purchasing and product supply
  • Suggested Actions – how to address gaps/issues, opportunities and threats
  • Conclusions


Those attending the webinar will gain an understanding of the issues generated by a no-deal Brexit. The implications on the wider industry, and to their own business will be made clear. It will prompt deeper consideration of the issue, and the webinar will provide pointers on how individual businesses can prepare for this potential outcome.
