Kaag and Keijzer understand many Dutch entrepreneurs have been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. They urge organisations to prepare for the consequences of Brexit nonetheless.  From 1 January 2021, the transition period ends and changes will be faced in how the Netherlands does business with the United Kingdom. With less than 2 months to go, Dutch businesses need to get ready for this new reality.


The Netherlands’ Brexit Desk website contains information about the current situation, as well as tips and experiences shared by other businesses. Entrepreneurs can also use the Brexit Impact Scan to gain insight into the potential impact of Brexit on their business, and what practical steps they can take. Lastly, they can apply for a Brexit voucher, which is a form of grant for tailored advice about dealing with the effects of Brexit and accessing alternative markets.
