What to do next
While this news was expected, undoubtedly you have questions that pertain to your organisations own unique circumstances. By reviewing your organisation’s current EAs, alongside your digital roadmaps, this will give you a clearer picture of potential cost implications and a timeline of when and where you’ll need to act.
In order to help you, we will be running a series of webinars in the coming weeks to explain our understanding of the changes, how the DTA works including the discount structure, and demonstrate working examples based on anonymous real-life customer examples.
Register your interest below and we will send you a choice of dates and times. Alternatively, for further details on this announcement contact your Trustmarque Account Manager or email [email protected].
