Managing Risk – Our 3 point process

We conduct a regular review of Brexit related risks and maintain a risk table, to help with mitigating these risks we have put together the following:

Our 3 point plan

  1. Risk Assessment
  2. Scenario Definition
  3. Contingency Planning

Managing risks within business is critical if you are to prosper, there are always risks waiting around the corner and now with our leaving the EU there are many risks, risks from the uncertainty, risks from the changes to our economy and the fall in sterling and risks with the outcome of the negotiations including whether we have any trade agreements.

Hopefully time will remove some of the risks by agreeing conditions with the EU, the only problem is that during this time unless risks are managed it maybe difficult to miss their impact on your business.

To protect your business we carry out the following 3 point plan

  1. Conduct a risk assessment against currently known economical and Brexit risks
  2. Define scenarios for the areas of your business which have been identified as being ‘at risk’
  3. Based on the areas defined as ‘at risk’ we will produce contingency plans 

We consider each of the following… plus more!


Pro-Brexit campaigners have argued that leaving the EU will dramatically reduce bureaucracy and return sovereignty to the UK but, in the short to medium term at least, Brexit is likely to trigger extremely complex legal ramifications and uncertainty, not least in terms of the law. The debate around sovereignty is not as simple as it first appears.


Although fluid, the UK government may decide to implement compliance-relevant laws that are different and stricter than a joint EU proposition where regulation is designed to be harmonious and applicable in all Member States.


Renamed – The Repeal Bill is a white paper setting out plans to transfer thousands of EU regulations into UK legislation, David Davis the Brexit secretary said any substantive policy issues would be dealt with by new laws scrutinised by parliament.

The fall in sterling since the vote to leave the EU has had a negative impact on the prices we pay for imported goods and services. Whilst sterling may strengthen in the longer term this impact is resulting in rising inflation, affecting everyone.


Whilst negotiations are underway the UK are unable to fully define and agree any trade agreements before our exit in March 2019. Dependant on negotiations however, we may be able to finalise trade agreements during an agreed transition period.

A priority on both sides during the BREXIT negotiations, the rights of EU citizens living and working in the EU and UK citizens living and working in the EU.

column1-image2Financial Advice 

It is highly likely there will be impacts to the financial services through the legislative and regulatory changes ahead. Businesses must stay informed on what any changes will mean to them.

column2-image1Everything Else!

We are committed to supporting businesses through the changes ahead, before, during and after we leave the EU. We are structured to provide businesses with the ‘factual’ information they need on all subjects, to enable vulnerability assessments and contingency planning to be undertaken to ensure they are resilient through these uncertain and changing times.

Our factual information covers all industry sectors as it evolves, including:


A continual cycle of sow, grow and harvest and very dependent on workers and subsidies. Challenged by a fall in migrant workers and the uncertainty surrounding the replacement of the subsidies currently received from the EU.


Already challenged in these digital times, retailers are reliant on having enough workers and already facing challenges from the rise in import costs due to the fall in sterling. Challenging and difficult times ahead.


The hospitality sector includes restaurants, bars, wedding venues and caterers, all of which are heavily reliant on workers, 70% of servers are from outside of the UK. Already highly challenged by a decreasing work force, rising costs for import wines, spirits, beers and foods and rising inflation this sector needs all the information and help available.


Rising inflation hits consumer spending on luxuries such as holidays, although the internal tourism market may benefit over the overseas tourism market. Uncertainty over passporting rights for UK airlines, the exchange rate, migrant workers and freedom of movement for overseas holidays are all factors likely to impact the tourism sector. ‘Factual’ information and contingency planning is essential.


The manufacturing sector is already seeing increases in the costs of imported raw materials and availability of workers with uncertainty over changes to regulation and manufacturing standards ahead.

Changes and any resulting impacts will vary hugely across the service sector and will depend on the trading relationships, dependency on migrant workers and service that is provided. Each service business must assess their vulnerability and consider contingency planning to mitigate any risks to ensure they are resilient.

column1-image1Motor Trade

Motor dealers selling imported car marques are all depending on a continuing positive and free trade relationship to continue as they know it. Used motor traders have already noted purchasers being reluctant to commit compared to a couple of years ago. Motor factors supplying imported parts will be also be impacted by increased inflation and rising costs from the fall in sterling.


It is already widely known that our health services are struggling, with increasing demand and fewer nursing positions being filled which can only be exasperated by falling migration numbers and higher import costs for medicines etc. Positions being filled by consultants and researchers alike are at risk and of concern until the uncertainty over freedom of movement is replaced by a suitable solution. This sector also includes care homes, clinics, doctor’s surgeries, dentists, opticians, and alternative therapists.


Universities are already seeing impacts from our vote to leave the EU with reduced student numbers and a reluctance of overseas research scientists and specialists to come to the UK. Private schools may also be impacted as consumers review their spending in times of uncertainty with rising inflation.

column2-image1All sectors

The level of change across all business sectors varies hugely depending on whether they import or export, rely on the availability of migrant workers, sell what is known as middle market luxury items or services and the amount of cashflow they have to ride both the economical challenges and the changing times ahead. The belt and braces approach is essential to ensure a businesses vulnerability is assessed, by having the information to hand to enable contingency planning, if required.
