Does Your Business Need Brexit Support?
AIB is ready to provide the support your business may need to navigate Brexit.
We would encourage you take the following 5 steps to prepare your business for the impact of Brexit:
Take the AIB Brexit Ready Check
Take the AIB Brexit Ready Check and in less than five minutes you can get a risk assessment of the effect Brexit may, or may not have on your business and get practical advice to help you understand those risks.
Assess your Business Cashflow Needs
With likely additional supply chain costs, Brexit may affect the cash flow of your businesses, so give consideration to your working capital needs. We have a number of options detailed below that may be suitable for your business.
Consider your Customs and Finance Arrangements
If you are importing goods from the UK, you may need to consider putting a Deferred Payment Arrangement in place with Revenue. You will need a Comprehensive Guarantee from your bank for this arrangement.
Review your Foreign Exchange Risk Exposure
Our Foreign Exchange team can help to design bespoke solutions for your business to mitigate your foreign exchange risk.
