Cost of preparations for the UK’s exit from the EU

By June 2019 HM Treasury had allocated £4.5bn to departments to fund preparations for the UK’s exit from the European Union in the period 2016-17 to 2019-20. This includes preparations should the UK leave without a deal. Departments have also allocated resources out of existing budgets.

Our work on EU Exit to date has examined the state of preparations and expenditure across a number of areas of government. This report will review expenditure across government departments in the period up to October 2019. This will include an examination of what departments have spent their allocations on and the quality of the information departments have available on the resources they have committed.
