Trading goods with the EU
The UK is leaving the single market and customs union at the end of the year, so there will be steps that your business needs to take regardless of the outcome of negotiations.
We are running a series of events to answer any questions you may have around the new rules and how they'll affect the way your business trades with the EU.
From 1 January 2021, the process for importing and exporting goods will change and your business needs to be ready.
