EU Exit 

Business Support Hub

The UK has completed its separation from the EU

On 31st December 2020, the UK exited the European Union Customs Union & the Single European Market. On 24 December 2020, the UK and EU negotiators reached an “agreement in principle” on the text of a new trade and cooperation agreement to govern their relations now that the UK has left the EU. The provisional application of this agreement went live on 1 January 2021 following the ratification of this agreement by both the EU and UK. You can view a summary of the agreement here.

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.
