With now less than 75 days to go to the end of the transition period, whilst many British companies have taken steps to prepare, there are still many who have yet to take actions to ensure they can continue trading with EU counterparts from 1st Jan 2021. We continue to highlight that despite whether there is or not a trade agreement signed with the EU before the end of this year, UK and EU companies will be facing new customs procedures and documentation, so please ensure you understand how your business is likely to be impacted by these new changes.

We have taken the time to compile the key advice from UK Government, and other sources, to make it easier for our members and customers to not just keep up with the upcoming changes but tap into resources and tools to help them prepare. You can find these in our Brexit Hub.

Our hub offers:

Also, make sure you use the UK Gov Transition Checker covering changes impacting both businesses and individuals.

Make sure to take a look at what is available and request tailored support if needed. Do not leave it to the end of the year to start preparing.
