UK Government to run live webinars on the UK Transition for business

The UK Government is to stream a series of webinars ahead of the end of the Transition period on December 31 this year, to help businesses prepare.

The sessions will be run by the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and take place between October 13 and October 29 2020.

They're designed to help key sectors understand the actions they need to take including how to import and export goods, the process for hiring staff from the EU and how to provide services in EU markets.

The UK has left the EU and is leaving the EU single market and customs union at the end of the year. The end of the transition period will affect businesses and they need to take action NOW to prepare for guaranteed changes and new rules from January 2021.

The webinars will be recorded and made available for those businesses unable to attend. They will be hosted here:

Business sectors being covered by these webinars are:

· Services and Investment – 13 October

· Retail – 14 October

· Automotive – 14 October

· Metals and Materials – 20 October

· Electronics and machinery – 21 October

· Consumer Goods – 22 October

· Life Sciences – 27 October

· Construction – 28 October

· Aerospace – 29 October

BEIS has run successful seminars and events to help businesses prepare for leaving the EU several times over the past two years.

A digital roadshow held in 2019 was also a big hit, with three-quarters of those who attended saying they found it useful.
