The UK government has published two tranches of information to assist businesses with contingency planning for a ‘no deal’ Brexit. They include actions that businesses should take immediately to ensure that they have the best chance of minimising disruption.
HMRC Partnership Pack
HMRC has published an updated version of its Brexit ‘Partnership Pack’ which aims to help businesses prepare for the possibility of the UK leaving the EU without a deal on 29 March 2019. This publication builds on the previous version of the pack, published in November and includes new guidance on the immediate steps that UK businesses trading with the EU need to take.
UK government's preparations for a 'no deal' scenario
This document puts the government’s technical notices in context, explaining the circumstances in which a no deal scenario might materialise. It also explains the ‘government’s overarching approach to preparing the UK for this outcome in order to minimise disruption and ensure a smooth and orderly exit in all scenarios’.
