Brexit guidance for small businesses



The terms of the UK’s exit from the European Union remain unclear, however the Brexit deadline has now been extended to 31 January 2020, and there are no negotiations taking place until after the general election on 12 December. One scenario, that of a ‘no deal’ still remains a possibility at that time. This potential outcome would have a significant impact on many smaller businesses.

Our hub is designed to support small businesses and the self-employed to prepare for a possible no deal scenario when the UK leaves the European Union. The hub contains and signposts you to information, designed to be practical in nature, to help you to prepare.

We will be updating the hub regularly with more information being added each week. Guidance currently available:
