UK-EU Trade Deal

The United Kingdom and the European Union agreed a Trade and Cooperation Agreement governing future trade relations from 1 January 2021, that will see no tariffs or quotas on the movement of goods produced between the UK and the EU. 

Further details and a summary explainer document are available here

The deal with the EU means the UK can now regulate in a manner that suits the UK economy and UK businesses – doing things in a more innovative and effective way, without being bound by EU rules.
As with any major change, there will be challenges as we adjust to new ways of doing business with the EU. While the deal secures us tariff-free access to EU markets, you should still check what you need to do to allow your business operations to run smoothly.
