Getting Your Business Ready for Brexit

    The Borough Council wants to guide you through the trading scenarios of leaving the EU and to help you understand what Brexit will mean for your business. We want to help you plan and prepare for this transition, and thereafter to help you make the most of future trading opportunities.

    Our Economic Development team works with partners, including the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses, to support local businesses and provide information to understand the potential impact of Brexit on your business.

    The following resources are here to help you:
