Post-Transition Brexit Checklist
The UK’s impending departure from the European Union will bring change for businesses of every size and sector.
The checklist below relates to possible changes flowing from Brexit that your business may need to consider. It has been prepared in response to BCC research on business preparation, and in response to member queries and the information available from government.
Withdrawal Agreement & Political Declaration
On 17 October 2019, the UK government and European Commission agreed the text of a new UK Withdrawal Agreement (WA) and Political Declaration (PD). This ‘deal’ combines a transition period that would run from the date of the UK’s departure from the EU (before 31 January 2020) until December 2020.
We’ve compiled three Guides to help businesses understand the changes to Rules of Origin, Tariffs and Custom Declarations in the event of a No-Deal Brexit. The British Chambers of Commerce do not want to see a messy exit from the EU, but believe businesses should prepare for all scenarios. The Guides help you learn what these changes are, how they apply to you and what might be different. If you have specific questions then we can help – please get in touch with us here.
Get your step-by-step guides to:
- Customs Declarations – How UK businesses will need to change the way they import and export goods in the event of leaving the EU Single Market.
- Certificates of Origin – Where are your products from? Sounds simple but can be very complicated. Learn how this is determined and what will change.
- Tariffs – A No-Deal Brexit means a new set of tariffs and commodity codes could apply to UK imports and exports. Find out here.
