Preparing for Brexit

 

As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is helping businesses to consider how they can plan for the future.

Since the EU referendum in June 2016, business communities across the UK have faced unprecedented levels of uncertainty about trading conditions in the future. While the final outcome of the Brexit process remains unclear, the BCC is encouraging companies of all sizes and sectors to consider how they may be affected.

In order to help companies think about how their operations could be impacted, we have created a Business Brexit Checklist, outlining key areas of operations where firms should assess what could change after the UK’s departure from the EU.

The BBC have also prepared the No-deal Guidance Dashboard, document which brings together elements of the Risk Register and unanswered no-deal questions document that we produced previously. The Dashboard is an evaluation of the quality of official guidance available to firms to prepare for the UK’s departure from the EU, in a no-deal scenario, and identifies the areas where firms still lack the information they need to plan effectively. The BCC is using the Dashboard across Whitehall to help the government to provide more comprehensive information to businesses and to highlight the risks of a messy and disorderly exit from the EU.  

In the midst of high levels of political noise and turbulence, the BCC has also created an FAQ to distil the Brexit Agreement, and to help businesses understand what it means in practical terms.
