Brexit preparedness

Working on clarity and certainty for our customers, whatever the outcome.

Our promise to you

The UK has exited the EU and is currently in a transition period until the 31st December 2020. 

During this transition period, the trading relationship between the UK and EU will stay the same, while both parties seek to determine their future relationship. If the UK and EU do not ratify a deal on their future relationship by the end of December 2020 – and no extension to the transition period is agreed – then the UK will leave the EU without a trade a deal and trade between the two bodies will operate on WTO terms. 

Sage has project teams who are focusing on preparing for implementations influenced by Brexit, which is endorsed by the Sage Board. 

In addition, Sage will maintain our robust governance procedures to manage preparations during this transition period. These include the Sage Brexit Forum and the Sage Brexit Programme, comprised of many key stakeholders, to ensure all areas of our business and products are ready while both parties seek to determine their future relationship.
