Operate after Brexit  

Scotland's enterprise and skills agencies are focussed on helping businesses operate after Brexit and maximise growth opportunities in international markets .

The first port of call for all businesses should be for the latest guidance, support and advice.  This includes:   

  • Understanding VAT after Brexit – the rules surrounding VAT have changed. Understand how the new rules affect your business, with country-specific information and situational examples. 
  • Everything you need to know about Rules of Origin – find out how Rules of Origin impact your business and follow a five-step process to make sure you’re following the new regulations. 
  • Transport and logistics – how to ensure your goods get to market and you get the imports your business needs to operate after Brexit. 
  • Key dates for companies to note in 2021 - since a trade deal has been agreed between the UK and the EU, businesses must ensure they are up to date with changing rules and regulations surrounding their business operations.
