EU Exit support and advice for your business
The UK left the European Union on the 31st January and has now entered into a transition period which will last until the end of 2020. During this time, all the current rules with regards to travel, trade and business between the EU and the UK will remain the same.
Negotiations will take place over the course of the year and new regulations will come into force from the 1st January 2021 when the transition period ends. As new requirements and guidance becomes available, we will endeavour to share this with you so that you can continue to prepare your business for the future.
Businesses in our region can also access free help and advice through our telephone service or face to face with one of our Growth Managers. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs.
