Government guidance for a no-deal Brexit – updated

aat comment

The Government boosted its guidance for a no-deal Brexit in the second edition of its Partnership Pack, aimed at helping trade bodies and agents – such as accountants – to advise businesses on the changes they should expect.

The pack is a wide-ranging set of resources, from useful initial ‘primers’ to niche technical guidance. With the increasing possibility that no deal will be reached, we recommend AAT accountants and bookkeepers some of the documents so they are ready to advise their clients.

The full pack can be viewed here.
