Preparing Businesses for Brexit
The UK is preparing to leave the EU on 31 October 2019 and businesses face uncertainty around future trading conditions.
The UK plans are not yet finalised, and all local businesses are being advised to consider how Brexit may affect them and their supply chains, and to ensure that they and their workforce are well prepared.
Below is a series of toolkits and links that have been prepared to help businesses prepare for Brexit. Please note that this information and guidance has been collated from a number of external sources and is not official East Dunbartonshire Council advice, or a political statement or position of the Council on Brexit.

- British Chambers of Commerce: Brexit Hub
If you have any members of your workforce that are EU Nationals and want to continue to live and work in the UK after it leaves the EU, it is important that you make them aware of the EU Settlement Scheme to ensure they are prepared and know what they need to do.
There is also a specific employer toolkit available on the EU Settlement Scheme to assist with briefing employees: EU Settlement Scheme: employer toolkit.
All of this advice is for guidance only and you should seek the appropriate legal and professional advice.
