The UK is no longer part of the EU Single Market and Customs Union and due to the lateness of the trade deal many businesses have been left unprepared for what this means.

Despite the EU being one trading zone, there are now 27 new countries for each company to deal with – including new rules and regulations. Many businesses have been hit hard as they work through the burden of bureaucracy they are now having to face.

To help you to understand the new tax landscape, we have partnered with accountancy firm and VAT experts, Haines Watts, to bring you the first in our Post-Brexit Series of events – How to navigate the new VAT rules.

Andrew Needham, VAT Partner at Haines Watts, who has over 20 years’ experience supporting owner managed businesses, Plc’s, and multinationals, will kindly deliver this session. Together will look at ‘the deal’, explore recent developments and key issues facing businesses to help you navigate the new rules with confidence.

This is a free-to-attend event open to NEPIC members large and small.

We hope you can join us.


  • The deal – and its limitations
  • Importance of Origin
  • Recent developments
  • Key issues
  • How we are working with clients to address the challenges
