You can also sign up to receive email alerts as soon as they publish any new guidance or updates.

Duty relief schemes

In the event of a 'No Deal' Brexit, you'll need an EORI number in order to move goods in or out of the EU. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to apply for one online, and it can take up to 3 working days to process.


Data protection

The Information Commissioner's Office has highlighted six steps to take to prepare for data protection compliance.
