Brexit transition: make sure you’re ready.

From 1 January 2021 businesses that deal with Europe will have to follow new rules on exports, imports, tariffs, data and hiring.

The transition period ends in just 17 days. 

Businesses in England, Wales and Scotland need to complete a list of actions to continue importing from EU countries from 1 January 2021.

HM Revenue and Customs have a number of resources to help with preparations for the Brexit transition:
