Prepare your Business for new rules from 1 January 2021
The EU Exit Transition Period is coming to an end and businesses are being encouraged to make sure they are ready for new rules, coming into effect from 1st January 2021.

Whilst 2020 has proven to be a challenging year for everyone, there are changes coming into force which will enable your business to continue trading from 1 January. This is where the Worcestershire Business Central team can help.

Our team are here to help ensure your business is ready for the UK’s new relationship with the EU. Even if you believe your business is not set to be affected by the new regulations, it is worth getting in touch with the team to ensure you can be confident their are no surprises waiting for your business.

The new rules will effect:

  • Trade, importing and exporting
  • Customs, taxes & duties, export and import declarations
  • Placing goods on the market
  • Hiring staff outside and inside the UK
  • Providing services to EU markets
  • Certification and labelling of products and materials
  • using personal data
  • Transfer of personal data between the Uk, EU and select third countries

If any of these points could impact your business, do not hesitate to contact the Worcestershire Business Central team so that we can identify support and guidance for your business in any way we can.

The Government has also produced a helpful checker tool which once completed will provide businesses with a list of actions they will need to take to be prepared. Use this link to access this checker.
