Transition Period Master Checklist
19 October 2020
The UK has left the EU and the transition period will end on 31 December. As we transition to our new relationship with the EU, we all need to take action to prepare.
From 1 January 2021, there will be a series of guaranteed changes and opportunities for businesses.
Many of these changes will be required regardless of the agreement we reach with the EU on our future trade relationship, as the UK will be leaving the single market and customs union. You can be confident that your preparations for these changes will not be wasted.
You need to check what will change for your business from 1 January 2021 and take action now, to ensure you are not at risk.
Here is a list of actions that are relevant to our sector to help you to start identifying what your business needs to do. A summary has been provided for each action, explaining why your business needs to act and where you can find further information.
These actions have been categorised into separate themes to help you decide which actions are relevant to your business.
There may be more actions that are relevant to your business.
You should visit gov.uk/transition and use the simple checker tool to find out if your business needs to take any further actions.
