Transition Period








The UK exited the European Union on

31 January, 2020.

A transition period is now ongoing while negotiations to establish a future relationship beyond 31 December take place.

If these talks do not produce an agreement, a no-deal EU-Exit is still possible. “Deal” or “No Deal”, there will be implications for cross-border trade and as such companies need to understand how EU-Exit will affect them.

Businesses of all sizes and sectors must be aware of the changes ahead in order to not see any detrimental impact. Many businesses may not even know that they will be affected and must prepare.

Our team of international trade experts can offer you and your businesses a wealth of support.
