Four ways Kent County Council are preparing its residents for Brexit

A study by ComRes shows that the people of Britain continue to be in two minds over their preference for a deal or no deal Brexit.

Nearly 40% of UK residents are in favour of leaving the EU this Friday without any form of a trade deal and that another 40% were all for remaining in the EU.

This demonstrates that the people of Britain continue to be in two minds over their preference for a deal or no deal Brexit.

In the midst of all the uncertainty surrounding the future of the country, Kent county council have taken the conscientious decision to inform its residents about how the should prepare for Brexit.
Here are four ways Kent Council are preparing its residents for Brexit:

1. Do not get caught out by increasing rates of customs duty!

KCC have said;

“If the UK leaves the EU with no deal, you may need to pay different rates of customs duty (tariffs) on imports.
If you need to pay customs duty, the rates (tariffs) could vary depending on where you import your goods from.”

2. Could I see your licence and registration please?

KCC have warned residents that if there is no EU deal then it is advised that an individual

“Should continue to carry your vehicle registration documents with you when driving abroad for less than 12 months”.

3. Congrats, you have been successful in your application to study abroad!

Calling all students studying within the EU, KCC advise that in the case of a no deal scenario that you should contact your higher education provider so that they can advise you about the: Residency rights, access to health care, tuition fee status with the EU.


4. Were all in this together!

KCC insist that workplace securities will be enforced if the UK leaves the EU with no deal in place.
In the event of a no deal Brexit workers must:

“Confirm whether they will still be protected under the national guarantee fund established in that country”.

This can be enforced by being alert of the correct legislation that apply’s to a country apart of the EU in which they work.

Trade unions may have to review agreements set by the European Works Council in the event of a no deal Brexit.
