Business travel: extra requirements
Stay up to date
This page tells you how to prepare for travel to Europe from 1 January 2021. It will be updated if anything changes.
As well as the actions all travellers need to take, there are extra actions if you’re travelling to the EU for business.
Business travel includes activities such as travelling for meetings and conferences, providing services (even with a charity), and touring art or music.
The country you’re travelling to might have its own entry requirements, or ask you to have certain documents.
Check your qualifications will be recognised in the EU if you provide services like legal services.
Earning money in the EU
You might need to tell HMRC you’ll be working in the EU. Check whether you’ll need to pay social security contributions in the country you’re working in.
Check whether you need indemnity insurance for your employees.
Taking goods into the EU
Check you’ve got the right documentation to take goods to the EU.
