Business Brexit Checklist

The UK’s impending departure from the European Union will bring change for businesses of every size and sector.

While some companies are already planning for the challenges and opportunities ahead, Chambers of Commerce believe that all firms – not just those directly and immediately affected – should be undertaking a Brexit 'health check', and a broader test of existing business plans.

Time spent thinking through the changes that Brexit may bring to your firm could yield real dividends in future. There are steps that businesses of all sizes can take now to start planning ahead.

The checklist below has been prepared in response BCC research on business preparation, and in response to member queries and the information available from government. We hope you find it useful as a basis for business planning at both operational and Board level. Below are the key areas in which you should consider possible changes, and resources which can help you plan.

Business is done better together and you don't have to navigate Brexit alone. Contact your local accredited Chamber of Commerce to find out how your Chamber can support you.

*Please note that where materials refer to precise timelines for policy these may be subject to revision as events unfold.
