The end of the Brexit transition period is fast approaching, and although we’ve made great strides as an industry, there’s still a lot we don’t know and plenty to finalise before the end of the year.
To assist with preparations, together with CRN, we have questioned more than 300 UK channel partners to see how prepared they were for Brexit and what their most pressing concerns were pre-January 2021. In conjunction with this research, we also held a special Brexit roundtable, demystifying the next few weeks and months, and planning for the impacts ahead. Now you can view the discussion, joining Westcoast’s Managing Director, Alex Tatham, as well vendor and reseller partners as we explore the channel’s way forward.
It couldn’t come at a more appropriate time, either. CRN’s research has revealed that only half of channel partners interviewed are already prepared for Brexit, and just 69% said they’ll be prepared by January 1st. Where does your business stand?
Through this roundtable discussion, you’ll learn how Brexit could affect the industry at large. We also discuss some of the channel’s biggest concerns, including:
- Lack of information from government, vendors and distributors
- Losing non-UK clients
- Price increases
- Supply chain issues
- New taxation rules
Of course, we can’t promise to solve every detail that will emerge, but we’ll work with you to help you minimise the impacts on your business – even beyond January 2021.
It’s time to get prepared.
