Covid-19 Update Current Business Position 15 Jul 2020
From a business perspective, the current Cornonavirus Convid 19 pandemic and consequent precautions undertaken, has had an impact. Supply of frames and display products had been severely curtailed, due to lack of staff to manufacture, and suppliers no longer able to supply materials, as not essential business activity. However, as lockdown restrictions are relaxed business conditions are somewhat improving. With the exception of personalised gift products, it is still advised that customers contact us first by eMail or telephone to check the latest position prior to placing orders. As always stay safe and take care.

Coronavirus Convid-19 Business Impact 25 Mar 2020
This is clearly difficult time. Best wishes, and stay safe. From a business perspective, the current Cornonavirus Convid 19 pandemic and consequent precautions undertaken, has an impact. Our photography business involving contact activities (weddings, events etc.) has temporarily ceased. Bulk supply of frames and display products is severely curtailed, due to lack of staff to manufacture, and suppliers no longer able to supply materials, as not essential business activity. Personalised gift products, continue to be available, albeit limited to reducing availability of stock such as frames. Despatch of products is limited to 1 or 2 slots per week, and this may be further curtailed if UK policy changes further. Prices for all products, are frozen. There will be no price increases for any products until this crisis passes, as it will. Take care.
UK Leaving The European Union Preparations 8 Oct 2019
Following a referendum in 2016 the United Kingdom population voted to leave the European Union (EU). Following several extensions of notice, the UK is now due to leave the EU on 31st October 2019. Datalite UK Ltd has been preparing for this event, by reviewing business practices, and ensuring procedures are in place for exporting to the EU (including Ireland). Largely by following similar routines to our existing non EU customers. Also preparations include being allocated a Economic Operator Registered and Identification (EORI) number issued to our business by HMRC, which is now available when required. Despite numerous 'scare' stories, it is anticipated that the transition will be seamless, and of minimal (if any) impact to our existing EU customers.
