Ye the rate is pretty bad atm

I may get busier at work though, currently having a week off as there is nothing useful for me to do.

Do you work on the Brexit negotiation team?

Manufacture industrial electronic products, we always get orders from China, Canada and the middle east when the pound flops. Our UK customers sometimes get extra orders too and our work picks up due to that.

I was going to say at least brexit won’t impact on exports there but I think we use EU arranged export agreements

Exporting to EU countries is currently very easy, linked with business EU VAT numbers. After leaving the EU, new export paperwork and import processing procedures will be needed for UK to ship goods to an EU member territory.

I was thinking more non EU countries. Aren’t most of our world trade agreements done via the EU so they’ll all need to be renegotiated?

I don’t like to talk politics…but somehow i don’t believe Boris is going to do any good…
There is no way you could take that guy seriously for some reason…dunno if those are the looks or something.

Guess what urban dictionary thinks about Boris…
It’s a joke. Don’t take it seriously :smiley:

Yes. We’re part of the EU now and are therefore under the ‘EU export/import umbrella’. When we leave, we’ll have to negotiate our own.
Trump has said we’ll get a good agreement though, so all OK there.

EU and USA were talking trade deal without (almost) tariffs since more than 10 years ago.
I don’t believe that UK and USA talks are going to be any better…

I’m suddenly glad I went half board on this years holiday. Otherwise breakfast and evening meals would have gotten quite expensive…
