Businesses in the Winchester District invited to free advice at ‘Brexit clinic’

Businesses located in the Winchester District who are keen to learn how Brexit could impact them are invited to a free clinic.

The event, which is provided by Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership and Winchester City Council, will support small businesses with scenarios and risk assessments to guide them through the challenges which Brexit presents.

A panel of experts will give advice on human resources and employment, customs and tax implications, exporting, importing, regulations and standards. It takes place on Thursday 21 March at 9am at the Guildhall Winchester.

Winchester City Council’s Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Business Partnerships, Cllr Rob Humby, who will be chairing the event: said:

“It is crucial for us to work with partners to help businesses plan for the impact of the leaving the EU. The council’s priority is to ensure that businesses feel confident about the post-Brexit landscape so they can make informed decisions.”

Ross McNally, Executive Chair, Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and a non-executive Director of Enterprise M3, added:

“Our event in Winchester is one of 14 we are running across the Enterprise M3 to help people plan ahead. Businesses will have a chance to talk to experts about issues they are facing, find out how they can access information on line to support their planning and talk to fellow businesses about issues and opportunities.”

Enterprise M3, Winchester City Council and the Chambers are working together pooling resources to support our valuable and vital business community.

Places are limited and will be booked on a first-come, first-serve, basis.  To secure your place, with the opportunity to have a one to one session with our expert panel, visit enterprisem3growthhub.co.uk/events or email events@enterprisem3growthhub.co.uk
