We know some of our customers and suppliers have questions about the impact of Brexit. The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020, and the transition period, during which there was little practical change, finished at the end of December 2020.
Negotiations on a new Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the EU and UK have finally been reached. This is welcome and comes as a relief to many businesses. Nonetheless, there are significant changes from 1 January, so it remains vital that every effort is made to minimise potential disruption and help business manage the changes underway.
We have taken steps to ensure business continuity and manage the many changes expected as a result of the new FTA. Our Brexit preparations have the highest priority and are overseen by our Board of Directors. Actions include: resource planning; reviewing, and where necessary, adjusting our systems and processes; and working with our supply chain in order to minimise disruption to our operations.
In addition, as a global company we already supply goods and services to customers around the world and will adapt as necessary in this case. Our priority will always be supporting our customers to the highest of standards.
We will continue to keep our customers and suppliers informed and are happy to answer any further questions. Please contact your local account manager if you would like to discuss this further or visit our contact us page for details of how to contact specific Siemens UK businesses or our media team.
