U.K. companies are turning to cheaper overseas labor to complete their post-Brexit customs paperwork, creating jobs in countries such as Romania and India due to a shortage of trained staff in Britain.

Anticipating a surge in demand for its services, Xpediator Plc, which handles freight flows for international companies, has been hiring workers in Romania. Dave Gladen, the firm’s group marketing manager, says the country has a deep pool of expertise in the EU’s customs rules because it only joined the bloc in 2007.

Then there's the hit to UK borrowing
as our debt is linked to inflation.


Government borrowing was higher than expected in August as debt interest payments rose due to higher inflation.

Borrowing, which is the difference between tax income and spending, was £20.5bn, official figures show - £5.5bn lower than in August last year.

However, it was still the second-highest figure for August since records began.

Economists had expected government borrowing to be about £15bn.
