Government publishes advice for business and individuals to prepare for Brexit
The government has published a wide range of advice packs for businesses and individuals in preparation for the UK exiting the EU. They have also published a range of guidance for businesses in the event of a 'no-deal' Brexit.
The government has published a raft of information and guidance to support businesses and individuals in preparing for Brexit. The “Preparing for EU Exit” website is the central site for guidance aimed at businesses and individuals.
Government have also developed a tool specifically for businesses to help them prepare for EU Exit. It asks businesses to seven questions across key business operation areas that will be impacted, from which it pulls together guidance from across government relating to their circumstances.
As part of the 'no-deal' preparation process, the government has also prepared a ‘Partnership Pack’ with information designed to help businesses with their own contingency planning, as well as the customers and clients of business advice services. Key documents are highlighted below:
- Preparing for changes at the UK border after a ‘no deal’ EU Exit
- Customs, excise, VAT and regulatory changes you need to know about if there is no deal
- Communication Resources
- Preparing for a ‘no deal’ EU Exit: step-by-step guide to importing
- Preparing for a ‘no deal’ EU Exit: step-by-step guide to exporting
- UK Passport holders travelling to the EU in the event of a no-deal
The no-deal 'Partnership Pack' contains a raft of other guidance notes for business on issues ranging from rules governing road haulage and ferry and Channel Tunnel operators to freight, customs, ports and airports, business sectors, animal imports/exports, diamond trading and civil explosives. The full list of advice is all in the ‘Partnership Pack’.
The government has also published a series of ‘technical notices’ in preparation for a no-deal Brexit
