What it means for business

Brexit - supporting you through the transition

Our number one priority is to serve and support our customers. 

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 and is now well into the transition period, which is due to end on 31 December 2020.

We are continuing to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates as negotiations conclude.

You can find out more by taking a look at the information on this webpage and our helpful customer guides.

Leaving the EU

Is your business prepared?

Beware of fraudsters

Criminals are taking advantage of the potential confusion around the UK leaving the EU to defraud businesses.

These criminals are posing as HMRC to get businesses to part with their money.

  • If you’re a UK based business, they’ll claim you need to register for a ‘UK trader number’ if you trade with EU countries. 
  • If you’re an EU national living in the UK, they may claim you owe additional tax.

Remember that HMRC will never ask you for payment or personal details by email or text. If in doubt, call HMRC on a trusted telephone number.

We’ll never contact you out of the blue to ask for your personal information or ask you to move money to a safe account.
