For businesses, the extension/election kerfuffle is an additional period of uncertainty but also additional time to prepare and understand what their #Brexit exposure is. What are the risks and what can you do to mitigate them.
It can be daunting if you don't know where to start. Especially when it comes to the "forgotten tax" - #customs. Companies often don't have an in-house customs team. Either outsource the function to brokers and agents or have someone who "also does customs".
Internal customs processes are often followed blindly without a full understanding of why all the steps need to be taken. Which is understandable without a wider trade/customs context.
What can help many businesses is a bit of context. A number of organisations have published guides on trade and customs, hold events for businesses, do podcasts. It's all about explaining trade/customs in a way that's accessible and clear to non-technical audience
For example, @IoD_Press has done some really good podcasts and events in addition to their other Brexit materials. @AllieRenison is also working tirelessly to explain trade to many businesses in a concise and clear way
@IoD_Press @AllieRenison At @britishchambers we got our Brexit hub ( and recently published a set of free, short guides designed to introduce ppl to various areas of customs

@IoD_Press @AllieRenison @britishchambers The reason why I like them is cause we've written them in a way that makes it very easy to understand what these areas are and why are they important for traders in the context of Brexit. Good balance of context and practical info
@IoD_Press @AllieRenison @britishchambers For example, here is @egianqui explaining how customs declarations impact traders
