With current news headlines in Britain, it is thought that difficult times are ahead for trading overseas, but this need not be the case.
This is the time for businesses to develop their communication channels and to seek to build opportunities as new markets open up with their International counterparts – colleagues, customers and suppliers alike.
The importance of overseas collaboration between businesses and helping them to establish, and build on relationships needs to be made as straight forward, and cost-effective as possible; this is where we see our International Numbers helping your business.
UK Businesses to Consider Moving Abroad
A recent article on the BBC website informed people that the IoD (Institute of Directors) had surveyed Business leaders and “almost a third of UK companies could move some operations because of Brexit”.
The BBC had also been told by European Trade agencies that “hundreds of UK companies are in the process of setting up operations in the EU”
This indication is likely due to uncertainty around Brexit and how it is going to proceed going forward, but it’s also likely that companies need to continue dealing with our EU neighbours, so the easiest thing to do is setup or move existing company divisions to the EU or at least have a some kind of presence available no matter which way the switch goes.
For example we have seen a big increase in the sale of International Ireland Phone numbers (will have link) and smaller increases in various other major city phone numbers
