Business East Hants and EHDC recently undertook a Brexit survey of local businesses which identified a number of key areas where businesses require support.

In response to this we want to ensure the relevant information and guidance is circulated to our local business community.

Please see the information below sent on behalf of Enterprise M3 LEP.

For traders - check what you need to do for the type of goods you import or export

  • You can make it easier to import goods from the EU by registering to use transitional simplified procedures
  • Make sure the EU business that you are selling to has the required paperwork to receive your goods​
  • Keep up-to-date on import tariffs for day 1 of Brexit 
  • Find out how to register for and make a customs declaration​
  • Make sure your business has an EORI number​
  • If you buy or sell goods to the EU then you need to get ready for changes​

For businesses - check what’s changing in your industry​

  • Your contracts may need updating to continue using customer data between the EU and UK
  • Check new guidance if you manufacture or distribute goods to the EU
  • Employees practicing and serving clients in the EU may need to have their professional qualifications accredited. Check and apply by 31 October.

For hauliers - make sure you have the right driver and vehicle licenses and permits for driving in the EU

  • Make sure you have the right documentation for the goods you’re carrying across EU borders, including your Master Reference Number (MRN)
  • Check what you need to do to avoid delays.
