Get Ready for Brexit
On 23 June 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union (EU), via a nationwide referendum. Results can be viewed on the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU webpage.
The government’s Get ready for Brexit website provides businesses and individuals (including EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU) with up to date information on how to prepare for Brexit. You can also sign up for email updates.
Full details on how to prepare your business for Brexit can be found via the South Gloucestershire Council website, here.
