The UK is poised for a new start, now we have left
the EU, as we transition to our new relationship. The
government is preparing for the end of the transition
period by increasing border controls and boosting the customs sector.  Ensure you are prepared so please visit

As the UK prepares to leave the transition period at the end of 2020, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and the Chamber of Commerce network are also helping businesses to consider how they can plan for the future.

Since the EU referendum in June 2016, business communities across the UK have faced unprecedented levels of uncertainty about trading conditions in the future.  Chambers of Commerce are encouraging companies of all sizes and sectors to consider how they may be affected.

In order to help companies think about how their operations could be impacted, the BCC has created a Brexit Checklist, outlining key areas of operations where firms should assess what could change.
