Preparing for Brexit: events and Government updates


The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is issuing a weekly Brexit bulletin with the latest information for business on the UK exiting the European Union (EU). The bulletin will signpost businesses to the tools and resources available to help them prepare for the UK’s exit from the EU on 31st October.

BEIS also holds regular Business Readiness Forums for trade associations, business representative bodies and business intermediaries. Experts across government speak about the areas that will affect businesses and how best to prepare for Brexit. These forums are available online through WebEx and are held at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in London.

For further details on how trade associations and business intermediaries can register for the forum or to subscribe to the bulletin, email sed@beis.gov.uk.
