Further information from the event will be included in the bulletin.
  • As there is industrial action currently taking place at BEIS, please use our main entrance on the day.

Full day details

From feedback we have received, we are aware that a number of people were wanting to hear more from HMRC and on importing and exporting. We are working with HMRC on a Brexit Business Readiness Conference which will update you on HM Government’s no deal preparations and what businesses need to do, particularly focusing on importing and exporting. In the main sessions we will explore what’s needed for importing and exporting after Brexit, and the government measures introduced to support business readiness. You’ll also be able to pick from a number of tailored breakout sessions for Importers, Exporters, and Hauliers – as well as on the Common Transit Convention, Food and Agricultural specific import/export, and the EU Settlement Scheme. The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, will give a keynote speech. After the event we’ll provide materials to support your communications to the businesses and organisations you represent. The event will take place between 10am and 4pm, with registration from 9.30am.
