Get Ready for Brexit

Last Updated:

On 31 January 2020 the UK formally left the EU and entered a transition period until December 2020. The UK will continue to be treated as a Member State, and no new border controls will be implemented, until 31 December 2020. The priority of the UK Government is now looking to negotiate a trade deal with the EU.

On 3 February 2020 a statement was published on the Government’s proposed approach to negotiations with the EU about our future relationship.

On 10 February 2020 the Government announced plans to introduce import controls on EU goods at the border after the transition period ends.

Leaving the EU means there will be a number of changes taking place that will affect businesses, UK citizens, EU citizens living in the UK and UK nationals living in the EU.
