Helping LCR businesses
prepare for Brexit

The Local Growth Hub is committed to helping Liverpool City Region businesses plan for the various Brexit scenarios they may face.

We know from speaking to local businesses that many people are unsure about how best to be prepared, particularly in the case of a “no deal” Brexit. Queries range from future staffing to customs administration, VAT transactions, import delays and regulatory matters.

Despite the uncertainty of potential outcomes, it is essential that businesses are as prepared as they can be. Depending on your particular business there are steps you can and should be taking now to prepare for the UK leaving the EU.  This page signposts businesses to resources provided by the government and other organisations from both the public and private sector to help you navigate through these and other areas. You can also sign up to our newsletter for updates.

We have a team of business brokers who can help answer your queries about preparing your business for Brexit. If you’re uncertain about what Brexit means for your business, please get in touch.

Preparing for EU Exit

The Government has developed a “Preparing for the EU” website which is a central site for guidance aimed at businesses. You can also download a leaflet here which provides signposting advice and key considerations that SMEs may need to undertake for EU Exit.

Various trade bodies have also prepared Brexit guidance specific to their sectors:

For businesses concerned about what tariffs they may be charged in the future for importing goods involved in their processes, or, alternatively, what tariffs their competitors will be charged for bringing goods into the UK, the following tariff guidance has been published.

These are the tariffs that are expected to be levied by the UK at the point of exit from the EU (or at the end of any transition period) unless a trade deal is agreed with the EU.
