The Business Secretary, Alok Sharma has written to 600,000 UK businesses to ensure they are ready for the changes that will affect every sector, in just over two months time.

The Business Secretary 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 gov.uk to see what action they need to take, sign up for updates, or attend one of our sector-specific webinars. Businesses have a crucial role to play in ensuring a smooth transition."

When the transition period ends on 31 December 2020, there will be a guaranteed set of changes and opportunities for which businesses need to prepare as the UK leaves the customs union and single market.

To make sure businesses are prepared, the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is providing a series of sector-specific webinars that kick off on Tuesday, 13th October, to remind them of the changes they will need to make.

The webinars cover general areas that businesses of any shape and size will need to understand and act on, such as visas, work permits, and tariffs – as well as sector specific information.

Business sectors being covered by these webinars are:-

  • Services and Investment - 13 October

  • Retail - 14 October

  • Automotive - 14 October

  • Metals and Materials - 20 October

  • Electronics and machinery - 21 October
