Umm...! Well we were hoping to include the latest update for Brexit and how it could effect the borough. However, as we write it's still all up in the air and despite all the activity over the last couple of months at Westminster and Brussels, meaningful votes and the Prime Minister's dashes across the channel, not much has changed since our last update in January!
Due to the borough elections we will not be producing e-borough Insight next month and by the next issue we are (at the moment) scheduled to have left the EU.
In the meantime, can we highlight two information sources..
The government has a dedicated website urging individuals to prepare for exiting the UK - this will be updated regularly.
It includes information if you are travelling, if you are a student, if you are an EU citizen living and working in the UK, if you are a UK citizen living and working in the EU and a plethora of other information. You can also sign up for email alerts.
Please take a few minutes to have a look - https://euexit.campaign.gov.uk/
The above website also contains advice for business.
In addition, Surrey Chamber of Commerce are running a series of free business clinics across the county, so that you can get your small business Brexit-ready advice from a panel of experts. Topics include:
- HR and employing EU citizens
- Customs and tax implications
- Exporting and importing
- Regulations and standards
For information and to book a space see the Surrey Chamber of Commerce website events pages
