New fund to support customs experts through Brexit, too late

03 September 2019
Jonathan Branton, head of public sector at DWF, comments on the announcement by the UK Government that it has introduced a £16 million fund to support customs experts post-Brexit.

Jonathan Branton said:

"This is a welcome initiative from Government to prepare many businesses for dealing with issues they have previously not had to address. However coming so late in the day (towards 31 October), it will not realistically give time to adjust in advance of the deadline to those businesses that have not thought ahead and already organised themselves. It is therefore hard to escape the feeling that this should have been announced not just months, but years ago."
