The Government is working to ensure an orderly exit from the EU and a good deal for the UK. We continue to engage extensively with business across the country, including the West Midlands, to understand their concerns.

The Government is providing businesses with the latest advice and information to ensure that they are prepared for all aspects of leaving the EU. The guidance published at https://euexitbusiness.campaign.gov.uk/ helps businesses locate the most relevant information based on their sector and activities.
