Brexit: The transitional period will end in 100 days
The UK ceased to be a part of the EU on 1 February 2020. Due to the agreed transitional arrangements, this fact has, so far, largely gone unnoticed in everyday life. However, this transitional arrangement will end in 100 days. Regardless of whether the UK and the EU ultimately reach a trade agreement, a customs union between the two areas no longer exists. Border controls and customs formalities will become necessary. Other changes are also to be expected. In this newsletter we summarise the main points, to the extent that they are currently known.
