In October 2019, the Government published an Impact Assessment in support of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, in line with statutory requirements.

It is a standard assessment which focuses on the likely direct costs and benefits to businesses associated with the provisions of the Bill, for example familiarisation/administration costs. It does not assess wider impacts of the Withdrawal Agreement on the UK economy, which is considered outside the scope of the Bill.
