About us

The Ready for Brexit team has over 250 years of combined hands-on experience in exporting and importing and working across borders.

The members of the Ready for Brexit team have all worked for large companies, as well as SMEs. We are aware of all of the issues that can occur and, more importantly, are able to anticipate problems so that they do not materialise.

We wanted to share this knowledge, which is why we have come together to form ReadyforBrexit.
