As preparation for EU exit, the government has already made £6.3bn available and we have created a £108m Brexit Business Preparedness Pot – which is being allocated across government.

The Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy has – from this pot - introduced a £15m Business Readiness Grant Scheme to enable business representative organisations to aid SMEs across England and the UK to prepare for Brexit.

We will continue to monitor and work closely with businesses across the country to help ensure they are fully prepared for when the UK leaves the EU.
