Brexit extension to 31st January 2020

October 28, 2019 3:52 pm

This morning’s Unsworth Brexit webinar considered the latest Brexit extension and its impact on shippers Brexit planning.

The UK will not be leaving the EU on Thursday, as European leaders agree in principle to extend Brexit, with a “flextension” until 31 January 2020.

The latest development means that theoretically nothing will change until 31st January 2020, earlier if a deal is ratified and a Withdrawal Agreement gets approved by both parliament and the EU, when the UK will enter a transition period until at least December 2020.

During this time trade should continue as normal……..

However, with the continuing political uncertainty, a No-Deal exit is still a viable possibility, so we would encourage customers to finalise their contingency planning and make their business Brexit-proof.
