Brexit Audit And Risk Assessment
Identify critical gaps and refine operating procedures to become fully Brexit ready
We are currently helping increasing numbers of organisations cope with the requirements post-Brexit. Many have had little time to fully test the operating procedures across their own organisations, agents and 3PL partners and we are now finding that most are having issues.
Our 2-day audit and risk assessment, carried out by Customs and logistics experts quickly identifies and prioritises the critical gaps that need fixing. Our rapid support and training means we can help within days and ensure you are fully compliant with HMRC requirements and your team has the knowledge to process imports and exports accurately and in a timely manner, to keep your goods moving. We will also be able to advise on the most cost-effective solution for you, once 'normal' business has resumed - contact us today to find out how we can help.
We agree the scope, gather and review all of your documents, procedures, data transfers and records needed to satisfy the requirements of an HMRC audit.
Our assessment covers the completeness, rigour and effectiveness of your processes, procedures, and the capability of your team to generate the new documentation and certificates required, and to meet the approval, capture and reconciliation of the transactional records to meet HMRC standards

We work through the requirements with you to understand your specific needs and explain why, when and how you need to be able to fill any gaps.
We generate a plan with you that prioritises the urgent actions to ensure compliance with the Jan 01 transition, and can provide the training and support to deliver.
In many instances the initial solution may not be the most cost-effective, so we can help you plan and deliver those options available which can deliver a more effective solution.
