Brexit Statement

Brexit

Embracing the challenges

The decision to leave the EU means that we must embrace the challenges that Brexit will inevitably bring to all of us.

In light of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and whatever the result of negotiations, Holdan will continue to prepare for all possible outcomes to ensure that, as the largest specialist Cine, Broadcast & Professional video distributor in the UK & Europe, we deliver unwavering support to our vendors and customers.

With our on-going commitment to this situation, we have given consideration to a number of areas, such as customs control, impact on costs, administrative workload and our employees and will seek to address these questions in an FAQ document that will be made available to you soon. Even though this is unchartered territory, we are focused on providing continuity for our customers and the channel alike. This will ensure that we emerge in the strongest possible position in a post-Brexit Britain.

Allan Leonhardsen, Managing Director

We have set up a Brexit team, led by our General Operations Manager Adam Levitt and we are confident that we are well-placed to deliver the growth and continuity that we have planned for.

We have summarised some key areas below:

  • In the unlikely event that we revert to WTO tariffs we do not expect this to have a material impact on pricing. The vast majority, if not all of Holdan products will not be affected. We have also conducted a review of commodity codes to ensure products are categorised correctly as they cross the border.
  • We have strategies in place to minimise disruption in the unlikely event of price fluctuations.
  • As part of the Midwich Group our status as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) will ensure that inbound goods are prioritised at the point that they reach customs control.
  • There may be some additional administration in the event of a no-deal and we have allocated additional resource to deal with this.
