There are many challenges and opportunities arising from Brexit and its impact on international trade, not only for UK businesses but also for those based internationally.
The UK has left the EU and during the transition period under the Withdrawal Agreement all European legislation will continue to be enforceable in the UK as it is now. The transition deal puts in place an implementation phase to the end of 2020 to allow the UK to maintain the same arrangements with Brussels on trade, free movement and regulation. Our experts are on hand to provide you with the necessary support and advice you need as we prepare, and then exit the transition from 1 January 2021.
The transition period comes to an end at the end of the year and the Government has stepped up its campaign to advise UK businesses on the steps they need to take in preparation. The Government has launched the Check, Change, Go campaign, that will run alongside the UK’s continued negotiations with the EU. The UK is leaving the single market and customs union at the end of the year, and there are many actions UK businesses can take now, that will not be impacted by the negotiations. The Government has provided step by step guidance for importing goods from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and similarly if you export goods to the EU and those countries.
