Brexit - advice for your business

This page offers advice and resources to businesses following the UK’s decision to leave the EU. If a withdrawal agreement is approved by Parliament, a transition period will run from 22 May to 31st December 2020.

However, if an agreement cannot be reached and no further extension is negotiated, the UK will leave the EU on 12 April without a deal. Businesses are therefore encouraged to prepare for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.
