Free service launched to help businesses navigate Brexit

The North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce has launched a series of services which will help businesses prepare for the UK's departure from the EU.

Help for Brexit has been funded by the government and is free to use, including businesses not currently a Chamber member.

Support includes seminars seminars, workshops, training courses and webinars, as well as expert information and access to a wealth of specialist advisers. It covers areas such as cross-border regulations, people, skills, tax, insurance, accounting and finance.

Around 20 events will take place during the month of October at venues in Preston, Blackpool and Leyland.

Babs Murphy, chief executive of the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce said: “The UK’s impending departure from the EU will bring change for businesses of every size and sector. We believe that all firms, not just those directly and immediately affected, should be undertaking preparation for a no-deal exit.
