BEIS offers free UK transition business webinars
The UK has left the EU and is leaving the EU single market and customs union. The end of the transition period means businesses should take action now to prepare for guaranteed changes and new rules from January 2021.
To support business preparations the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is hosting free live and recorded webinars to help you check the new rules and understand the actions to take.
See the full schedule, watch on demand and sign up to for live sessions here. Following the initial broadcast the webinars will be available on demand.
Not sure what you need to do?
As a first step, you should visit gov.uk/transition where you can use the checker tool to quickly identify the actions that you need to take. The checker tool will ask you questions about your business and provide all the information you need to be aware of such as new rules on:
- Importing and Exporting
- Moving goods to and from Northern Ireland including the Trader Support Service
- Travelling abroad for work
- Hiring staff from the EU
If you're a business based in England, you can also contact the Business Support Helpline.
