What you need to know about Brexit in 2020

Following the Conservatives’ victory in the General Election in December 2019, the UK’s departure from the EU is all but guaranteed, beginning a year of transition during which the future trade relationship with the bloc is to be negotiated.

To help prepare businesses for the year ahead, the Institute of Export & International Trade delivered a one-hour webinar covering:

  • What the Withdrawal Agreement Bill means for UK businesses
  • What businesses should expect during the transition period
  • The potential crunch points ahead in the trade negotiations
  • What businesses can do to prepare for a new trade arrangement with the EU
  • An update on government grant funding for training in Customs processes – including completing Customs Declarations

If you have any further questions about Brexit and the transition period in 2020, membership with the Institute of Export & International Trade allows you to gain free access to a Technical Helpline, through which you can get quick and detailed answers to your export queries.

Kevin also referenced several of our previous Brexit webinars during the presentation, which you can view below:
