Prepare for Transition (Brexit)

The UK has left the EU, and the transition period after Brexit comes to an end this year.

The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period but new rules will apply from 1 January 2021.

You, your family or your business can take action now to prepare. Get a personalised list of actions by answering a few questions on the GOV.UK website.



Find out how residents should prepare for the new rules, including travel to the EU plus advice for EU nationals living in the UK and UK nationals living in the EU.



In the run-up to Brexit, you should run through your business continuity plans. You should focus on disruption and potential congestion that could result from Britain leaving the EU with no deal and what you need to do if you import or export goods and services to the EU.

Local travel

In the event of a no-deal EU exit, there may be disruption to road and motorway networks. When planning a journey, check before you leave, allow extra time and consider other routes. Make sure you take extra water and food in your car. Visit Highways England for details.
