The Preparing for EU Exit website is the central site for guidance aimed at businesses and individuals.

A tool has been developed for businesses as well to help them prepare for EU Exit. It asks businesses to answer 7 questions across key business operation areas that will be impacted and then pulls together guidance relating to their circumstances. You can find it online here.

The Government’s Exit Import and Export Helpline (0300 3301 331) will primarily support traders and hauliers who have questions about goods crossing the UK / EU border covering:

  • Requirements of the trader (e.g. customs declarations, export health certificates, controlled goods licences/permits).
  • Requirements of the haulier(e.g. trailer registrations, international driving permits).
  • Other prerequisites to trade (e.g. Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number).
  • Import easements (e.g. Transitional Simplified Procedures).

Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.

The BBC has prepared a simple guide to 12 key terms relating to Brexit.

British businesses can report issues preventing them from trading around the world through an online form: Report a Trade Barrier.

Requests are shared with the Department for International Trade’s team of trade experts who will assess trade barriers and work with other governments to resolve these issues. 

Barriers include unnecessary, legal, regulatory or administrative requirements such as labelling restrictions, out-of-date regulations and licensing requirements.
