The British Irish Chamber has helpfully compiled a digest of headlines within the technical notices that the UK government has published  outlining preparations businesses and consumers should take in preparation for a “no deal” outcome in Brexit negotiations.

They are the first 25 of an expected 84 papers and cover areas including: importing and exporting; VAT; financial services; regulating medicines and medical equipment; farming; state aid; EU funded programmes; workplace rights; labelling; and civil nuclear and nuclear research.

The headline on VAT – it and customs duty are due on goods arrival in the EU.

While the news headlines, following publication,  focused on businesses trading across the border being advised to seek help from the Dublin Government the Chamber points out a major problem for those businesses –  there is little guidance on additional measures that may be introduced to accommodate this trade.
