Leaving the EU with a deal remains the government’s top priority. However, a responsible government must plan for every eventuality, including a no deal scenario. Without a deal, businesses may need to take action before 29 March 2019, and we recommend that businesses ensure they are prepared.

The government has created an online tool for businesses to find the latest information on EU Exit, how they will be affected, and the actions they can take to prepare. Businesses can access the tool here www.gov.uk/euexitbusiness and sign up to receive customised alerts. New information will be published over the coming weeks so businesses should continue to check in on a regular basis.

Several government departments have recently published information on the steps that businesses may need to take to prepare for our exit from the EU, please see updates below.

  • The Border Delivery Group and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have published a series of short videos and leaflets to help businesses prepare for changes at the UK/EU border in a ‘no deal’ scenario. The videos set out the actions that businesses will need to take to continue to trade in a ‘no deal’ EU Exit, and direct them towards further information available online. Along with a general video and leaflet for all businesses, there are tailored products for specific industries. There are also two deep dive videos available that provide more detail on importing and exporting in a ‘no deal’ scenario. The videos are all available here, and a toolkit will soon be available online with the full range of materials and advice on how to use them to engage with businesses.

 

 

  • BEIS also hosts a weekly EU Exit Business Readiness Forum to support businesses to prepare for a no deal scenario. The forum is aimed at business representative organisations, trade associations and professional bodies and provides regular updates on information published by all departments that may be relevant to their members. LEPs are welcome to attend or to subscribe to the Forum Bulletin to receive weekly updates. BEIS is also keen to support the engagement you are doing to help businesses in your area prepare for EU Exit. If you would like our support, please contact LGEngagement@communities.gov.uk
