Transition Period

The UK has left the EU. There is now a transition period until the end of 2020 while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements.

The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period.

Whilst Europe continues to fight the outbreak of COVID 19 across the continent, Brexit has taken a back seat. Talk has increased around the possibility of the UK extending the current transition period beyond 31st Dec 2020, as completely detaching ourselves away from the EU during this ongoing pandemic may carry further risk.

It is possible within the current Withdrawal Agreement, for the transition period to be extended up to 2 years beyond the current end date. The UK currently has remained stern in stating the UK will be not extending beyond the current transition period.New rules will take effect on 1 January 2021.

You should prepare now and subscribe to Composites UK member email updates about any additional arrangements.
