Leaving the EU with a deal remains the government’s top priority. However, the government is continuing to prepare the country for every eventuality and is advising businesses to continue their preparations for the UK leaving the EU without a deal.
New GOV.UK pages to help traders prepare for EU Exit

Extension to Transitional Simplified Procedures
Last week we also announced we will be extending arrangements already announced for traders to use Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP), which will make importing goods to the UK from the EU easier. Registering for TSP will allow UK businesses to transport goods from the EU into the UK without having to make full customs declarations at the border or pay import duties straight away. UK businesses that register for TSP will now have six months to make their first full customs declaration and pay import duties, with subsequent declarations submitted monthly. TSP is also now being made available at all UK ports.
You can find further information about the new changes to TSP and how to register your business on GOV.UK.
For further information
All businesses should continue to use the 'Prepare your business for the UK leaving the EU' tool, on GOV.UK which provides specific guidance based on their answers to seven questions about the nature of their business.
