BCC finds 'major gaps' in government no-deal Brexit guidance

25 Sep 2019

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has found 'major gaps' in the government's no-deal Brexit guidance for UK businesses.

The business group carried out a study into official government no-deal Brexit guidance for firms, and found that 31 of 36 critical areas are still marked amber or red, suggesting that businesses have 'incomplete or insufficient information available to plan thoroughly for a no-deal outcome'.

UK businesses need 'visible, clear and complete' no-deal Brexit guidance in order to assist them with contingency planning, the BCC stated.

'While the government has ramped up communication to businesses in recent weeks, there are still big gaps in the guidance available to help businesses to prepare for Brexit, with just weeks to go until 31 October,' said Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the BCC.

'Our business communities don't want to see a disorderly no-deal exit on 31 October, which would lead to an overnight change in trading conditions.

'Averting a messy and disorderly exit is still critical. Businesses across the UK want politicians on all sides to come together and find a way forward – fast.'
