The launch of the Brexit Business Resource Hub followed a consultation held by Sadiq Khan with businesses in September, which found that the latter felt they had not had sufficient guidance from ministers on how to prepare for Brexit.
According to independent economic analysis published by the mayor earlier this year, a no-deal Brexit could result in 500,000 fewer jobs across Britain by 2030 than if we remained a member of the EU.

The new hub – which is part of the mayor’s London Growth Hub that was launched two years ago – includes Brexit-related news, links to industry-specific reports and checklists, and an events calendar.
“I’m under no illusion about the massive contribution businesses make – not only to London, but to the whole country,” said Sadiq Khan.
“It’s why when I stood for this office, I vowed to be the most pro-business mayor ever.
“And, as we seek to navigate this period of heightened uncertainty, I want you to know that I’ll continue to stand up for your interests.”
Simon Pitkeathley, LEAP board champion for small business and CEO at Euston Town and Camden Business Improvement Districts, added: “Whatever the outcome of Brexit is, business owners need to know what the implications will be to their business.
“I, along with many others, am pleased that the mayor has launched his new Brexit Business Resource Hub.
“In a time of uncertainty for businesses, our city needs this forward-thinking and tactical approach to ensure that London’s economy remains strong and vibrant.”
