Prepare for Brexit, says Business Secretary

Business Secretary Alok Sharma has written a letter to over 600,000 firms across the UK, urging them to act now to prepare for the end of the transition period with the EU on 31 December 2020.

To help support businesses through the transition period, the Government will host a range of sector-specific webinars covering topics such as visas, work permits, and tariffs.

A construction business sector webinar will take place on 28 October. Businesses can sign up to attend BEIS webinars here.

In his letter, Alok Sharma called on businesses to familiarise themselves with the actions they will need to take, by visiting and using the checker tool.

He said, “Businesses must act now to ensure they are ready for the UK’s new start come January. There will be no extension to the transition period, so there is no time to waste.

“I urge all businesses across the country to check to see what action they need to take, sign up for updates, or attend one of our sector-specific webinars.”
