Brexit - key information for residents and businesses
The United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on 31 October 2019.
The specific type of exit has not been decided yet and we do not know whether there will be a withdrawal agreement or a no-deal exit.
We are working with partners across public services to make sure our services run as smoothly as possible with minimal disruption during this period of uncertainty.
