Prepare your business for EU Exit

The UK is set to leave the EU in the coming months. Leaving the EU means your business may need to prepare for change.

Delivering a deal negotiated with the EU remains the government's top priority. However, the government is planning for every possible outcome including no deal.

The Government has issued a range of advice to businesses on how to prepare your business for EU Exit.

HMRC allocates EORI numbers to all possible traders

As many traders as possible will be automatically allocated an EORI number to enable them to trade smoothly once the UK leaves the EU on 31 October.

Every business will need an EORI number to move goods into or out of the EU after Brexit. HMRC is sending letters to all possible VAT-registered businesses over the next two weeks to advise them of their assigned UK EORI number. 

If your business is not VAT-registered, you still need to register for an EORI number. Getting an EORI number is an easy process that takes 5-10 minutes. Get started here
