The Brexit Toolkit is designed to help businesses deal with trade and migration issues arising as a result of Brexit. Our self-audit trade tool delivers a report to help companies plan for the cost of trading with the EU after the UK leaves the European Union. And now we have a new migration section, which helps businesses future proof their workforce against new legislation and settlement rules.

The ‘Trading and moving goods from the UK to the EU if the UK leaves with no deal’ page includes guidance on what to do:
Government has told all companies which import or export goods into or out of the EU to register for an EORI number (a European Union registration and identification.
• how to make a customs declaration – with details of how to fill in the commodity code for your goods
• how to move goods under transit – including how to use the Common Transit Convention to move your goods more easily
• after your goods leave the UK – with details of how long you’ll need to keep your commercial invoices and customs paperwork.
The ‘Trading and moving goods from the EU to the UK if the UK leaves with no deal’ page includes the same relevant guidance but with additional details including what to do:
• when carrying merchandise in baggage
• importing animal, plant or other controlled products
• when your goods arrive – with details of how to pay customs duty and account for import VAT.
Extension to Transitional Simplified Procedures, last week the government also announced it will be extending arrangements already announced for traders to use Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP), which will make importing goods to the UK from the EU easier. Registering for TSP will allow UK businesses to transport goods from the EU into the UK without having to make full customs declarations at the border or pay import duties straight away. UK businesses that register for TSP will now have six months to make their first full customs declaration and pay import duties, with subsequent declarations submitted monthly. TSP is also now being made available at all UK ports.
All businesses should continue to use the 'Prepare your business for the UK leaving the EU' tool, on GOV.UK that provides specific guidance based on their answers to seven questions about the nature of their business.
You can catch up with the government EU Exit webinars for UK traders at a time suit you. The webinars cover what UK businesses need to know to keep imports and exports up to speed, and it identifies the key steps to continue trading with EU businesses.
