The Government is determined to provide certainty to people and businesses on Brexit.

We are now making further funding available for ‘no deal’ preparations. The Treasury has provided an additional £2.1bn for ‘no deal’ preparations this year, which doubled the amount of Brexit funding available for 2019-20. The Treasury has now made available £6.3 billion to prepare for Brexit, including £4.2 billion funding this financial year alone. £2 billion of further funding in 2020-21 will help the UK to establish a new relationship with the EU, and capitalise on the opportunities created by Brexit.

We continue to engage with business at all levels to ensure industry is prepared for all scenarios. Government is ensuring businesses are ready to leave the EU on 31 October through a national programme of business readiness.
