Guidance to support businesses in preparing for Brexit
– 21 December 2018
Government has now published new assets to support businesses and individuals in preparing for EU Exit. The ‘Preparing for EU Exit’ website is the central site for guidance aimed at businesses and individuals. Please visit https://euexit.campaign.gov.uk/
A tool has also been developed for businesses as well to help them prepare for EU Exit. It asks businesses to answer 7 questions across key business operation areas that will be impacted and then pulls together guidance from across Government relating to their circumstances. For Further information, visit https://www.gov.uk/business-uk-leaving-eu
There are a range of materials developed by the UK Government to help businesses prepare for all scenarios following our exit from the EU, including leaflets and short videos focusing on traders preparing for a no deal EU Exit at the UK Border (if this situation were to arise).
There is detailed information available at www.gov.uk/euexit including high-level context, audience-specific checklists and sources of further information. There is also a useful link to a short video on YouTube here.
There is help for the FE sector to ensure it is similarly prepared, including this published guidance to support the FE sector to prepare in the event of no deal being reached. The guidance signposts education institutions to relevant information, setting it in the context of how it may affect the education sector. The Government has conducted extensive planning and preparation for the past two years to ensure the country is ready for a range of scenarios.
The Federation of Small Businesses has published a toolkit for its members, together with research documents, and has provided access for any SMEs. For further information, visit https://www.fsb.org.uk/standing-up-for-you/brexit/introduction
