Prepare your business for EU Exit

19 Mar 2019

The UK is set to leave the EU imminently. Leaving the EU means your business may need to prepare for change.

Delivering a deal negotiated with the EU remains the government’s top priority. With an implementation period until December 2020, this would give businesses stability, certainty and time to prepare for our new relationship after EU Exit.

However, the government must plan for every possible outcome including no deal. Without a deal, businesses may need to take action before 29 March 2019.
