Latest on Brexit – February 2020
The U.K. left the E.U. on 31 January 2020.
The U.K. and the E.U. approved the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated in December 2019 at the end of January 2020. Under the terms of the agreement, the U.K. entered a transitional period to run from February 1st 2020 until December 31st 2020. During this period, there will be no changes in trading agreements between the E.U. and the U.K. Although the U.K. has left the E.U., the current rules on trade, travel, and business for the U.K. and E.U. will continue to apply during the transitional period.
What happens after December 31st 2020?
This will depend on free trade negotiations due to commence in March 2020. The Withdrawal Agreement includes a commitment to keep future border checks to a minimum, but it is likely that some form of customs declaration will be required on U.K./E.U. movements, even if a comprehensive free trade deal is agreed upon. The requirements have yet to be determined and will be part of the trade negotiations.
