What should I ask of my manufacturer partner?

Dealers are advised to speak to their manufacturer partners to ascertain their position on new vehicle (& parts) pricing in light of tariffs (both for pre-Brexit orders and in the longer term). Will they absorb tariff costs? What comfort can they offer? Dealers are advised to seek written confirmation. Customer-facing colleagues should be clear on correct position to ensure effective customer communication.

This document provides possible/general perspectives for NFDA members to consider in the context of a no-deal Brexit. The precise scope of such an outcome is not clear and would, in any event, still result in huge uncertainty. This note does NOT constitute legal advice. It is not exhaustive. Members should seek their own legal advice (based on their own circumstances) before acting.
