Kingston Council have asked us to share the following information to help businesses prepare for Brexit on 31 October.
As a business, there is some important information to consider. For example:
- Your contracts may need updating to continue to lawfully transfer personal and customer data between the U.K and EU.
- If your business trades with the EU you’ll need to register online for an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number.
- If you import or export goods from the EU, make sure you register to use transitional simplified procedures (TSP) and make sure you keep up to date with import tariffs.
- Employees practicing and serving clients in the EU may need to have their professional qualifications accredited. Check and apply by 31 October.
Free online tool
The Government has launched an online tool to help businesses prepare and find out more about what’s changing.
There is an employer’s toolkit with advice and information on how to support EU citizens and their families to apply to the EU settlement scheme.
If you’re travelling for business purposes such as for meetings and conferences, there are things you need to do before you travel. This includes checking your right to travel documents and passport and getting travel insurance which covers your healthcare.
Support for small businesses
The Mayor of London has launched nine new London Growth Hub Centres to support small businesses as they prepare for Brexit. The centres will offer face-to-face advice and resources, and will host a series of events throughout October. Find out more www.growthhub.london.
