Brexit Business Resource Hub

London is the best city in the world in which to do business and the Mayor of London has been clear that it will always remain open.

However, we know that businesses are unsure about how they can be best prepared for Brexit. To support you, the London Growth Hub and the Mayor of London have launched this new Brexit Business Resource Hub. It will bring together key resources from a range of partners to help you with business planning, supporting you to map areas of your business with potential exposure to Brexit.

This page will be continually updated with news, factsheets and events in London, to help you and your business prepare while we await more information on how Brexit will be implemented.
