20 Point UK Brexit Planning Checklist
There is still some uncertainty as to whether the UK or EU will agree a tariff free trade agreement. Either way UK business will face additional documentation for importing and exporting goods to the EU from 1 January 2021.
Planning for the new requirements seems sensible right now. There are also other business matters to consider such as data protection, intellectual property and replacing existing agreements with EU suppliers and customers.
Use this 20-point checklist to review your Brexit preparedness and the Government information to prepare actions for 1 January 2021.
The Government has published guidance: “The transition period ends in December” see:https://www.gov.uk/transition
This outlines actions to take now if you are:
- importing goods into the UK
- exporting goods from the UK
- travelling to the EU
- living and working in the EU
- staying in the UK if you're an EU citizen
Our 20 Point UK Brexit Planning Checklist here details some of the areas you should consider, particularly if you import or export goods to the EU and haven’t had the need to complete the various forms before.
