EU Exit (Brexit)

EU Exit (Brexit) – Advice for Businesses

Brexit 2

'EU exit' (or 'Brexit') is the impending withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU).

The United Kingdom is due to leave the EU on 31 October 2019.

The Government has been preparing for any outcome from EU exit negotiations and has been implementing a programme of work to ensure the UK will be ready from day one in all scenarios, including a potential ‘no deal’ outcome in October 2019.

Visit the Government's EU Exit web page for more information

Support for Businesses to Prepare for Brexit

As part of the Government’s ongoing support for businesses, there are a series of events and webinars to help exporters to get ready for Brexit on 31 October.

These events and webinars will be particularly useful for businesses who are exporting to the EU. Sign up to:

You can also contact the imports and exports helpline for further support.

EU exit advice for businesses

The Government has designed this step-by-step guide and an information pack to help businesses prepare for EU exit and the potential 'no deal' scenario.
