Businesses and Brexit

The UK has left the EU and new rules came into effect from 1 January 2021.

The Government has published a Brexit Checker - https://www.gov.uk/transition to tell you what actions you need to take for you, your business and your family. You can also sign-up to email alerts on the Gov website to receive notifications.

We also have an Economic Development team who are able to provide advice and guidance on the above or any of the grant schemes available. For more details please call 01992 531581.

Brexit and EU Citizens in East Herts

EU citizens have always been welcome in East Herts and will continue to be so after Brexit. If you wish to stay in the UK after 30 June 2021 you will need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

You can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (settled and pre-settled status) on Gov.uk website.

If you need support with your application the Citizen's Advice Service can provide advice and assistance.
