The place to start preparations for business beyond Brexit

Our round-up of practical advice and information

The Government’s UK transition website is a good primer. It prompts you to answer a few questions then provides a personalised list of actions for your business, and this action checklist helps you identify what you need to put in place.

You can check the official transition news feed and sign up for emails to be updated when things change.

There are also news feeds for guidance and regulation and  policy papers and consultations.

The Government has set up online forums where you can view question-and-answer threads on a wide variety of topics related to the end of Transition. These cover  trade, transport and regulatory and legal issues. Anyone can view the threads but you must register and sign-in in order to post.

Three Government departments have set up Brexit Transition telephone helplines:

  • The EU Exit Business Support Line: 0800 998 1098
  • The Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy: 0300 322 9434 
  • The Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs: 0300 020 0301 
  • HM Revenue and Customs:  0300 2000 900 

There are also dedicated helplines for specific Brexit transition-related issues.

The British Chambers has information in its Brexit hub including a useful section Brexit transition and beyond.
