EU Transition Business Readiness Support Programme
There are lots of changes happening as a result of the UK’s exit from the EU, and numerous ways in which this can affect small and medium sized businesses. You may already be well prepared for this and not need any further assistance at this time, or you may need some advice to help understand how these changes affect you.
These changes don't only affect business who import and export and some may not be immediately obvious, for example, there are changes to:
- Labelling white goods, even if you only sell them in the UK
- Trademarks and copyright registrations
- How businesses employ staff from EU countries, or plan to employ EU staff in future
- Organic food labelling within the UK
- Selling on any platform that allows sales to the EU (i.e. including Etsy and eBay)
- Permissions required for any work-related travel into the EU area
These are just a few examples but there are many ways in which these changes may affect your business.
There is currently FREE support to help your business to get further information and advice on how these changes may affect you.
If you would like a One-to-One discussion about the impact on your business and any changes you may need to make, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Government steps up plans to keep trade flowing at the end of the transition period
The government has announced a series of measures to help keep trade flowing by minimising the risk of disruption at the end of the transition period.
Following consultation with industry, legislation to enable the enforcement of Operation Brock has been brought forward to ensure the plans can be implemented if needed. The move will help to reduce the risk of disruption as hauliers travel through Kent to reach the Short Straits – one of Britain’s busiest trade routes.
