New Trading Rules Come into Effect from 1 January 2021 - Prepare Now

Thursday 3rd December 2020

This information has been provided to us by the Department for International Trade (DIT).

Are you prepared for new trading rules with the EU?

There are only 4 weeks – including the Christmas period – until we leave the EU single market and customs union and new trading rules apply.

Regardless of the outcome from negotiations with the EU, there are guaranteed changes and opportunities which businesses need to prepare for – including changes to the way you import and export goods with the EU and the process for hiring people from the EU.

To help you prepare, here are 4 things you should do:

  1. Visit GOV.UK/transition to take a short survey and receive a personalised list of actions that you and your business needs to take.
  2. Sign-up to webinars hosted by DIT, BEIS, HMRC and Defra to learn more about the actions you can take to ensure your business is prepared for 1 January 2021. There are also recordings of sector-specific webinars.
  3. If you trade internationally, find out what you need to do to continue exporting goods to the EU and/or continue importing goods from the EU from 1 January 2021.
  4. Sign up to email alerts to stay up to date with any further changes.

If you have any questions about preparing for the end of the Brexit transition period and you can’t find answers at GOV.UK/transition, fill out the enquiry form and one of our experts will point you in the right direction.

If you trade with countries outside of the EU, information is also available on the steps you need to take when importing and exporting goods.

Upcoming Webinars

The Department for International Trade (DIT) has organised a series of webinars to help UK businesses understand the new trading rules which will come into effect.

All webinars are free to UK companies – register now.
