‘No deal’ Brexit guidance
The government has issued some ‘no deal’ Brexit guidance in for the form of technical notices, with the aim of helping both businesses and individuals to prepare in the event of a UK-EU agreement not being realised.
The government has published the first 25 notices. Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab was keen to emphasise that reaching a deal remains the ‘overriding priority’. However, until a Withdrawal Agreement is ratified by the UK and European Parliaments, the possibility of the UK leaving the EU without a deal on 29 March 2019 remains.
The 25 Brexit guidance documents cover a range of different areas, including VAT and trading, financial services, farming and workplace rights.

Josh Hardie, Deputy Director General at the CBI, said:
‘It’s right and responsible that the government has supplied information to businesses on issues from financial services passporting to food labelling, all of which will help lower the risks of the harshest outcomes from a ‘no deal’ Brexit.’
The government has confirmed further Brexit guidance – additional technical notices – will be issued in September.
