Brexit

The UK is preparing to leave the European Union (EU) on 31 October 2019.  The UK plans are not yet finalised, but those who may be impacted by Brexit are encouraged to plan ahead.

We have published Information for businesses to signpost them to guidance being provided by the UK Government and Scottish Government on preparing for UK exit from the EU.

EU Settlement Scheme

Any EU Nationals who want to continue to live and work in the UK after it leaves the EU, should make sure they are aware of the EU Settlement Scheme so that they can be prepared and know what they need to do.

There is an employer toolkit available on the EU Settlement Scheme to assist any organisation who has employees who are EU Nationals with information on the scheme: EU Settlement Scheme: employer toolkit.

If you have yet to apply or know anyone who has yet to do so, please refer to the support services listed below:

Individuals that have made an application, or are attempting to do so, can get help and support by contacting the Settlement Resolution Centre on 0300 123 7379. If you are calling from outside the UK, you can call on 0044 (0) 203 080 0010.

Preparing Businesses for Brexit

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.

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.
