Help & Support for Businesses

From 1 January the way we trade with the EU will change. To buy or sell from the EU you will need to follow new customs rules or you will not be able to continue to trade. These important actions are required regardless of the outcome of negotiations with the EU and whether or not the government secures a Free Trade Agreement.

The Government has published a website listing the help and support available to businesses, including links to webinars and videos covering a number of topics, including:

  • Exporting and sending goods outside of the UK
  • Importing and bringing goods into the UK
  • The customs clearance process
  • Webinars for exporters of animals and products of animal origin to the EU
