Brexit support for East Devon businesses

Is you business ready for Brexit? Comprehensive help is available to ensure East Devon businesses successfully negotiate the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Though the date of departure remains uncertain – even with the current Halloween deadline – the Heart of the South West Growth Hub has put together a wide range of resources to ensure local businesses are ready when the time comes.

Information currently available includes the Brexit Resilience and Opportunities Survey, which your business can participate in, and the official government tool, ‘Help your business prepare for the UK leaving the EU’.

Brexit events, webinars and LEP discussions, as well as information on grants and funding schemes, are accessible via the growth hub’s portal.

Resources include extensive information on what your business needs to do to prepare for a no deal Brexit.

Stakeholders and private sector advice, as well as one-to-one help, is available.

Support is available for VAT-registered businesses trading with the rest of the world, or the EU and the rest of the world.
