What do you need to do to get ready for Brexit?

Provide a few answers to a quick government questionnaire and you will receive a series of actions based on your exposure to Brexit, with links and advice to help you carry them out and timeframes for you to be aware of.

Business owners must not be complacent about Brexit. Whether the UK leaves the EU with a deal or without one, business owners must be prepared for Brexit itself.

The government has compiled a very quick questionnaire for business owners and individuals to fill out to discover their exposure to Brexit and learn the actions they need to take to prepare for it.

You will be asked about:

  • employing staff from European countries
  • importing and exporting
  • intellectual property
  • exchanging personal data with organisations in Europe
  • and more

You will then receive a series of actions with advice on how quickly you need to act, with suggested timeframes including "do it as soon as possible""it takes up to 7 days""it takes up to four weeks", and "it takes more than four weeks".
