The UK has now left the EU and there is a transition period until the end of 2020. To understand how this affects your business, the Government has published online guidance on how to get ready for new rules in 2021.

The GOV.UK website is the central site for guidance aimed at businesses and individuals.

The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period, but there are a number of actions you can take now to prepare for the new rules from 1 January 2021.
