The UK has left the EU and the transition period ends on January 1, 2021. Here are some important Government resources to guide you

2020 to 2021 transition

The UK Government has launched a major new “Transition” public information campaign called “The UK’s new start: let’s get going,” to give everyone the facts that they will need to be ready for the end of the EU transition period on 1 January 2021.

A straightforward checker tool at gov.uk/transition will quickly identify the specific steps any business or individual needs to take to be ready now. You can also sign up for a Business Readiness Transition Bulletin – a regular bulletin that provides information on major announcements, recently published guidance and webinar dates (when they are announced). The webinars will provide ‘one-stop-shop’ information on the readiness actions that businesses in the following sectors should take to prepare for the end of the transition period: Aerospace; Automotive; Chemicals; Construction, Infrastructure & Housing; Consumer Goods; Electronics & Machinery; Life Sciences; Metals & Other Materials; Professional & Business Services; Retail.

If you would like further guidance, please contact our national enquiry gateway which would be happy to point you in the right direction.
