Brexit is the impending withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU).
The current date for the UK’s exit from the EU is 31 January 2020, with the potential for this date to be brought forward if a Withdrawal Agreement is approved and implemented ahead of this deadline. If a Withdrawal Agreement is not approved and implemented before the 31 January, the UK will leave the European Union without a deal. The UK would then move into a transition period until at least December 2020 for companies to implement changes. Sage has project teams who are focusing on preparing for implementations influenced by Brexit, which is endorsed by the Sage Board.
In addition, Sage has robust governance procedures in place to manage preparations for Brexit. 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 will be ready for Brexit, irrespective of whether a Withdrawal Agreement is reached.
