Webinars

Tuesday 8 October, 11am, Managing Personal Data

In the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal, any organisation that receives personal data from organisations in the EU - including addresses in delivery details, personnel files, and intra-company transfers of customer details - will need to take steps to ensure these transfers can legally continue. More.

Wednesday 9 October, 11am Carbon Pricing Regulation

Topics covered will include the implications for UK businesses of leaving the EU Emissions Trading System, emissions monitoring and reporting requirements in 2019 and 2020, and compliance with the Carbon Emissions Tax. More.

Thursday 10 October, 11:30am, Employing EU Citizens and Providing Services to the EU

The Home Office will be presenting on the EU Settlement Scheme, covering background to the Scheme, as well as employers’ rights and obligations. When the UK leaves the EU, UK businesses and professionals will be treated as originating from a ‘third country’ and will not have the same kind of access to EU markets. Investment in EU businesses or the establishment of businesses within the EU will also be affected. More.

Friday 11 October, 11am, Importing and Exporting Services to the EU

The presentation will also cover information on services to EU based clients or exporting services to the EU, outlining new rules you may need to comply with if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. More.
