Is your business ready for Brexit?

The current date for the UK’s exit from the EU is 31 October 2019.

If a Withdrawal Agreement is not approved and implemented ahead of 31 October, the UK will leave the European Union without a deal. If a Withdrawal Agreement is ratified by the UK and the EU before 31 October, then the withdrawal would take place on the 1st of the following month. The UK would then move into a transition period between that 1st of the following month and at least December 2020 for companies to implement changes. If a Withdrawal Agreement hasn’t been ratified by the end of May then the UK must participate in European Parliamentary elections for the 31 October deadline to remain in effect.
