EY has launched a free Brexit app to educate businesses about government notices, regulatory updates and guidance, as well as providing updates with key developments.
With the end of the transition period on 1 January 2021, the app is designed to quickly inform businesses about how Britain’s exit from the European Union will affect them.
The app will also provide direct links to the Brexit webpages of key UK trade bodies, such as the British Chamber of Commerce, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the Federation of Small Businesses.
The app can be downloaded from the App Store for iOS and Android’s Play Store, and is completely free.
Sally Jones, EY’s Brexit strategy and trade leader, said: “Whilst many companies have prepared as much as possible, reports consistently suggest a lack of readiness particularly amongst smaller businesses — a key element of cross border supply chains.”
Catriona Campbell, EY client technology and innovation officer, said: “There is simply no way that businesses can be fully prepared for what’s coming as they don’t know what they are preparing for.
“Therefore, they need to take all steps possible to game the odds in their favour, and one crucial step in doing this is having access to the right information sources that are going to help navigate some of the complexities that Brexit will bring.”
She added: “The app contains all the key information sources in one user friendly, easy to navigate place.”
