Government no-deal Brexit advice published


The UK government published 24 technical documents of guidance for people and businesses in case the UK and EU do not reach a Brexit deal. The main points from these documents are that in the event of ‘no-deal’:

  • “The cost of card payments between the UK and EU will likely increase
  • Britons living in the European Union could lose access to their UK bank accounts
  • The accessing of pensions by British people living in the EU could be put at risk (The Guardian)
  • The UK will continue to accept EU products/regulatory requirements to make trade and business easier
  • Businesses trading with the EU should start planning for new customs checks, and the government is advising they consider paying for new software or logistical help to navigate the bureaucracy

The UK leaves the European Union in March 2019, but arrangements for the terms of the UK’s exit are said to be needed to be finalized by October 2018 to give time for the UK and European Parliaments to vote on them.

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said reaching a deal with the EU was the “overriding priority” and “by far the most likely outcome” but that the UK must be prepared.

Below are the 24 technical documents.
