Events to help you get ready for Brexit
Departments across government are holding events to help your business get ready for Brexit.
After Brexit there will be changes that affect businesses and hauliers across the UK.
Make sure you are prepared for them, particularly if your business:
- imports goods
- exports goods
- receives personal data
- exports services
Local business readiness events
The Department for Business is holding a series of free face-to-face Business Readiness Events across the UK, to help businesses find out what actions they need to take to prepare for Brexit. The events include support and advice stands, with in-depth sessions led by subject matter experts from across government, including Defra, HMRC, Home Office and DCMS.
You will find out more about a range of issues, including:
- the importing and exporting of goods and services
- transferring data
- employing EU citizens
Sign up to the events through the Brexit Business Readiness Events website.
Helping hauliers prepare for Brexit
The Department for Transport is setting up information pop-up stands across the UK and Europe to help hauliers and businesses prepare for Brexit, so that goods can continue to flow smoothly through ports.
The pop-ups will be located at ports, service stations and on ferries to provide easily accessible advice, helping hauliers understand the documentation they need for themselves, their vehicles and their goods after Brexit.
All stands will be staffed by multilingual advisors.
Further advice for hauliers is available on GOV.UK.
Brexit preparedness workshops for businesses that export
Businesses will leave these workshops with a personalised action plan for Brexit preparedness. The workshops will provide advice on:
- impact to supply chains
- changes to regulations and contracts
- where to find tariff information
- what businesses might need to speak to customers and employees about
Find your nearest event and sign up: please note that locations are still being added.
