Brexit-readiness: TIME TO ACT!

Are you a business or individual established or resident in the UK or EU? Are you currently trading with, in and from the UK or EU? And are you prepared for Brexit? Evaluate your Brexit-readiness: the time to act is now!

On January 31, 2020, the United Kingdom (“UK”) left the European Union (“EU”). However, up to and including December 31, 2020, a transition period applies. During this transition period the UK is deemed to be a part of the EU-Customs Union and Internal market. The UK already announced to step out of the transition period as from January 1, 2021 – with or without a deal. There are less than 80 days left to conclude a trade agreement. However, it is still uncertain whether a deal can be expected and what the exact implications are for companies trading in, from and with the UK and/or EU.

After the transition period has ended, the UK will no longer be considered part of the EU, leaving international businesses trading in or with the UK with a major impact on several areas of their day-to-day activities (e.g. tax and customs, supply chain, IT, legal/regulatory issues, people and immigration, amongst others). As time is ticking away, it is a prerequisite for your business to analyze the impact of Brexit on the activities, setup a Brexit-plan and establish a tailor-made approach and take the actions required.

As there is only a short timeframe left, the time to act is now! The NL Deloitte Brexit team has prepared several documents which provide new insights and which you can use to analyze the impact of Brexit on your business. Of course, the NL Deloitte Brexit team is happy to guide you through the Brexit process.
