As part of the no deal preparations, HMRC have published guidance and technical notices for businesses and their advisors on customs, excise and VAT, as well as a collection of letters and guides.
HMRC have published a collection of impact assessments on GOV.UK which are available at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/customs-vat-and-excise-regulations-leaving-the-eu-with-no-deal#impact-assessments
