A podcast series from PwC in which we discuss key Brexit-related events and issues affecting business and the economy.
Beyond Brexit S1E32 - The three C’s of the Northern Ireland Protocol
Few would disagree that finding an appropriate solution to movement of goods, people and data between Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland remains one of the most challenging aspects of Brexit. In this podcast our host, Shalena Poffenberger, is joined by Cara Haffey, Leader for Deals in Northern Ireland and David Armstrong, a Strategy and Economics Partner, to discuss the implications of the Northern Ireland Protocol and the ‘three C’s’: complexity, costs and the commercial opportunities for businesses.
Beyond Brexit S1E31 - Certainty in Brexit
As the clock to the end of the transition period ticks down, businesses are turning their attention to preparing for the changes that are coming whether a Free Trade Agreement is reached between the UK and the EU or not. In this episode, we discuss the certainties of the Brexit changes that are coming, and what businesses should be doing now to prepare.
Host Shalena Poffenberger is joined by Caroline Turnbull-Hall with a negotiations update, Andrea Als sheds light on the new UK Immigration regime, and Matthew Clark discusses how businesses need to prepare for new customs and tariff requirements.
Beyond Brexit S1E30 - Preparing for Brexit amid COVID-19
Over the past few months, many businesses have devoted significantly more time to responding to COVID-19 than to preparing for Brexit. But, as the end of the transition period approaches it is vital that businesses refocus their attention onto the changes that will come from January 2021. And, for some organisations the steps they've taken to navigate COVID-19 - such as strengthening their supply chains - will stand them in good stead when it comes to preparing for the future trading relationship between the UK and the EU.
In this episode, we have joined forces with our COVID-19: Business in Focus team for a spotlight on how businesses should be preparing for Brexit amid COVID-19 disruption. Host Rowena Morris is joined by Panny Loucas, the Brexit lead within PwC's tax business, and Cara Haffey, our Head of Manufacturing and Automotive sectors.
Beyond Brexit S1E29 - Now we are ‘Beyond Brexit’, what next?
The UK has now officially left the EU, but what does that mean in reality? Is everything different? Or nothing at all? What does the next year look like for the Brexit process and businesses? Our new podcast host Shalena Poffenberger is joined by Head of Brexit, Andrew Gray, Caroline Turnbull-Hall, our master Brexit scenario planner, who keeps us all up to date with the latest developments, and Phil Brown, Senior Trade Advisor to PwC, to discuss, what next?
Beyond Brexit S1E28 - Time to look to the horizon?
As a new flextension begins and the Brexit deadline extends to 31 January our experts discuss whether businesses should continue to focus on this moment in time, or begin to embrace a Brexit as Usual approach.

Beyond Brexit S1E27 - What now, what next?
