New advice from Business Secretary ahead of end of transition period

Businesses across a range of sectors have been given new advice on how the end of the transition period on December 31 will affect them.

Business Secretary Alok Sharma has issued tailored advice to businesses in many of the UK's leading sectors telling them what key actions they must take after the transition period ends.

Mr Sharma's letters contain QR codes and URLs which direct readers to GOV.UK, where they can view the online transition checker, sector specific webinars and access further guidance.

The letter was sent with a leaflet that provides further information about the new rules from January 1 2021.

In the letter Mr Sharma warns businesses to start their preparations today - as changes can take longer than thought to put into effect.

"There is just over a month to go until the end of the transition period and there will be new rules to follow from 1 January 2021 onwards. As Business Secretary, I urge you to act now to avoid your business operations being interrupted when the transition period ends.

"The Government is providing a range of support, including webinars to walk you through the changes. These are available to watch on demand at: gov.uk/transition-webinars. You should also check with your suppliers and customers that they are taking action.

"These are challenging times, but the transition period is ending on 31 December 2020 and there will be no extension. Unless you take action, there is a risk your business operations will be interrupted."
