Use this information to understand how leaving the EU may affect your business and what you can do to get ready

The UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019. Leaving the EU means your business may need to prepare for change.


Delivering the deal negotiated with the EU remains the government’s top priority. With an implementation period until December 2020, this would give businesses stability, certainty and time to prepare for our new relationship after EU Exit. However, the government must plan for every possible outcome including no deal. Without a deal businesses may need to take action before 29 March 2019.
