Accessing the EU is still possible for British companies...

Only if you find the right solution

Zebox Manchester have partnered with the UK Business Centre Lille to set up a series of workshops designed to help companies in the North of England increase their access to European markets.
 
The UK Business Centre Lille is an initiative launched by the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) Lille, Nord France Invest (investment promotion agency of the Hauts-de-France region) and its partner organisation Hello Lille. The UK Business Centre Lille is the backed by the UK Department for Business and Trade (DBT). It provides access to free consultancy and the full range of services British companies need when expanding into EU markets: customs, tax, logistics, legal, recruitment, HR, sectoral expertise, retailers, etc.  In so doing it reduces market entry risk and costs for UK businesses.
 
Situated in the vibrant Hauts-de-France region, Lille is a strategic gateway to the continent. With its proximity to major European capitals, a highly skilled workforce, and a thriving business environment across diverse sectors, Northern France (Hauts-de-France) provides an ideal strategic location for your business expansion.
