Ogmore AM urges local business to prepare for Brexit

Ogmore Assembly Member Huw Irranca-Davies has urged local businesses to prepare themselves for Brexit and seek advice from Business Wales’s Brexit Portal.

Business Wales is a free service that provides impartial, independent support and advice to people starting, running and growing a business in Wales. With regional centres across the country, they offer a mixture of online and face-to-face support, as well as training workshops and individual advice. It is now just a matter of weeks until the UK leaves the EU but unfortunately, the UK Government’s approach to Brexit means businesses in Wales are still left with many unanswered questions about what the future holds.

Businesses can assess their preparedness for a no deal Brexit with the Business Wales Toolkit https://businesswales.gov.wales/brexit/brexit-toolkit

Huw Irranca-Davies AM said: “It is important that our businesses in Ogmore are prepared for all eventualities. A no deal Brexit would be bad for Wales and bad for businesses in Ogmore.

The actions of the UK Government to run down the clock are making the prospect of leaving the EU without a deal more likely and I would urge local businesses to visit the Business Wales ports for advice and guidance. Support is available via the website which is easy to use.”
