PREPARING FOR THE END OF THE TRANSITION PERIOD

Many businesses who trade with the EU are no doubt watching the Brexit negotiations closely. Whether or not there is a free trade agreement, many of the administrative changes for trade and travel are already known and it is important you plan ahead for these.

The actions people and business owners need to take vary based on their circumstances. These include:

  • Making sure you are ready to travel to Europe from 1 January 2021, for example by getting comprehensive travel insurance, ensuring your passport is valid, and checking your roaming policy with your mobile phone provider.

 

  • If you want to travel to Europe with your pet from 1 January 2021, contact your vet at least 4 months before you travel.

 

  • Making sure your business is ready to export or import from/to the EU, for example by getting an EU EORI number or registering with the relevant Customs Authority.

 

We will keep you informed over the next few months of the changes and recommended actions you need to take.  Our team is here to support you every step of the way, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any queries.
