Trade & Work Global

Brexit has changed the landscape for UK companies and professionals wishing to conduct business in the countries of the EU or European Single Market or to move employees overseas. The paperwork that is now necessary has grown exponentially, whether this is to undertake a particular project, to move workers to an overseas location, to recruit staff, or to do business in a European Union country or countries. What’s more, the rules and laws are different in each country, and sometimes in each region of each country, and sometimes also in each different business sector.

Getting the paperwork right, and staying on top of it all, presents a huge challenge to businesses, eating up resources, time and profitability. Getting things wrong presents real risks – failures in compliance could lead to fines, penalties, refusals of access, legal and contractual liabilities, and damage to business relationships and to reputation.

Ecctis Trade & Work Global (TWG) is a highly practical service that gives businesses expert support, taking away any doubts, and ensuring they get all the procedures, administration, and permissions exactly right.

TWG takes away the bureaucratic headaches, reduces risk, and frees up businesses and professionals to focus on getting the real work done.

Background and problems

Since the UK left the EU, the European Single Market, and the customs union, the landscape for travel, trade, and providing services to our European neighbours is more complex than ever.

UK businesses cannot assume they can trade and provide services in the European Single Market as they used to. They may need to reconsider their commercial and contractual arrangements in light of new trade and immigration barriers.

UK nationals travelling to Member States for business or contracted services must follow Member State-specific rules, regardless of how long their trip will be. Each Member State has its own immigration system, entry requirements, and labour market rules. This means UK businesses face up to 27 different processes to send workers for any business-related travel to the EU.

There are also differences relating to: categories of worker; categories of ‘traveller’; contributions to the local social security system of the country; recognition of professional qualifications; and immigration and labour law requirements.

Solutions

Ecctis Trade & Work Global (TWG) is a powerful set of expert services and solutions for UK, European and global businesses and organisations needing to navigate post-Brexit laws, recognition, and visas. TWG helps you:

  • conduct trade
  • offer services in other countries
  • recruit overseas staff or students, or
  • to deploy staff internationally.

TWG takes away the bureaucratic headaches, reduces risk, and frees up businesses and professionals to focus on getting the real work done.

The rules and laws governing all the procedures, administration, and permissions are complex. They are new to most UK businesses, and apply to organisations large and small. The following examples are just 3 possible scenarios where TWG can help:

  • A small IT company secures a contract which entails them sending UK-based consultants to a Member State to undertake a project
  • A civil engineering consultancy has to send a professional team to a Member State to supervise and manage infrastructure development
  • A large building company is a subcontractor on a big overseas construction site and sends builders and tradespersons to work on-site.
