Charities and social enterprises are being offered a free tool to help them assess whether they are ready for when the Brexit transition period ends at the turn of the year.
The law firm Stone King has developed a Brexit Self-Audit Tool to help charities and social enterprises assess their readiness for the end of free movement and identify what actions they might need to take.
The tool aims to assist organisations that employ EU nationals, remind them of the steps they might need to take in relation to these individuals, and help charities that rely on the movement of people from outside the UK.
It will also support organisations that have a sponsorship licence, by reminding them of their responsibilities and helping them to identify any strategic actions they need to take in relation to their licence and the EU nationals they support.
Julie Moktadir, a partner in Stone King’s immigration team, said the tool comprised an online questionnaire to help charities understand what they should be considering before the December deadline.
“The tool aims to give an insight into the key issues and guide senior leaders to the main strategic considerations,” she said. “We want to help both clients and non-clients alike to be prepared in good time.”
