Brexit – Information

Knowsley Chamber and the Knowsley Business Team is committed to helping you plan for the various Brexit scenarios you may face. 

Together Knowsley Chamber and Knowsley Business Team are here to support your queries regarding Brexit.  We regularly liaise with HMRC, other city region business organisations and Knowsley Council so that we can report back to you.

In 2019 we made contact with thousands of Knowsley businesses to offer support regarding Business Readiness & Brexit. 18 businesses attended our Business Readiness Event and we provided 9 in-depth 1:1 Brexit advice surgeries. In 2020 we are ready to continue our support.

Brexit Business Readiness Bulletin      

20 December 2019      



Welcome to the latest in a series of business readiness bulletins, aimed at keeping your business up to date on the latest guidance on the UK exiting the EU.

The Withdrawal Agreement Bill

Following the State Opening of Parliament by HM The Queen on Thursday 19 December, the Leader of the House of Commons, announced that the Withdrawal Agreement Bill will have its Second Reading on Friday 20 December 2019. This Bill was passed by a majority of over 100. The Withdrawal Agreement Bill has been published and can be viewed here.  The Bill reflects the agreements made with the EU and the passing of the Bill will pave the way for the UK to leave the EU by the end of the extension period.
