EU Exit – What do businesses need to know now?

Worcestershire’s Growth Hub, Worcestershire Business Central are offering FREE training sessions and one-to-one business support for businesses preparing for any eventuality of EU exit.

The UK is now formally in a transition period until the end of 2020, while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements.
The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period. Further information can be found on the GOV.UK website.

It is important that businesses are aware of the changes they may need to make and what to consider before the end of the transition period.

  • What does EU exit mean for international trade?
