The UK left the EU on 31st January 2020 and we are now in the transition period, where the UK is treated similarly to EU members with no substantive changes, until 1st January 2021.
Negotiations on the future relationship are ongoing with limited progress made thus far. ADS has prepared a risk register highlighting the key issues that need to be resolved, what has been resolved, signposting relevant detail and guidance.
Given the lack progress and limited time left to reach a deal, the Prime Minister has now instructed businesses to prepare for a non-negotiated outcome. The Government has subsequently updated its readiness campaign to reflect the sense of urgency.
There are actions companies should take now to prepare for a non-negotiated outcome (a ‘no deal’). ADS has organised these by theme, which are summarised on this hub. Useful links to detailed guidance and relevant processes can be found throughout.
The UK is also negotiating trade agreements with other countries such as Japan, USA, Australia and more. This hub also contains information about these agreements, and we will provide updates on how they might impact our sectors as details emerge.
