Get ready for Brexit webinars for small business owners

The Department for Business is  hosting a series of webinars in partnership with the British Library. Each webinar will have an individual focus with the opportunity to ask questions to the relevant officials. These webinars are aimed at businesses, especially smaller businesses. Here are the webinar details:

Thursday 10 October, 11:30am, Employing EU Citizens and Providing Services to the EU

To help businesses understand how they need to prepare, officials from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Home Office are hosting a WebEx seminar. The Home Office will be presenting on the EU Settlement Scheme. The presentation will cover background to the Scheme, as well as employers’ rights and obligations. We will also be providing information on the recently announced, European Temporary Leave to Remain scheme. The presentation will also cover information on services to EU based clients or exporting services to the EU. When the UK leaves the EU, UK businesses and professionals will be treated as originating from a ‘third country’ and will not have the same kind of access to EU markets. Investment in EU businesses or the establishment of businesses within the EU will also be affected. At this session we will outline new rules you may need to comply with if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, focusing on:

Market access (including remote access)

Recognition of professional qualifications
