They will explore how to navigate the UK since the UK will be leaving the EU Single Market and Customs Union, and the new customs border between the UK and EU starting January 1, 2021. Benno and Sarah will discuss the impact of Brexit on VAT within the context of US businesses, what immediate action should be taken and other issues for consideration.”
