BritishAmerican Business (BAB) and Fragomen have published an immigration-focused guide for international companies doing business in the UK. 

Moving My Workers Post-Brexit sets out the current state of play for UK-EU immigration, including the key considerations businesses with operations in the UK need to be making during the transition period, set to last until 31 December 2020. It also provides a helpful summary of the UK Government’s proposed new immigration system, and how your business should be preparing for these proposed changes, as well as a timeline throughout the year and into 2021 to help you plan for what comes next. 

This guide covers:

  • What the current deal between the UK and EU means.
  • The settled status process – are your workers eligible to apply and how they can do so.
  • The timeline – what is likely to happen and when, and how you can be prepared.
  • Key messages you should be delivering to your business.
  • The UK Government’s latest immigration plans, to come into effect on 1 January 2021.
  • The differences in your approach regarding Irish citizens in the UK and UK citizens in Ireland.

You can read the guide online here.
