Future Relationship

31.01.2020 The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020 on the basis of the Withdrawal Agreement which was agreed by the European Council on 17 October 2019.

The agreement includes a transition period until at least 31 December 2020.

During this time, EU rules and regulations will continue to apply to the UK and the UK will remain part of the EU's Single Market and Customs Union. There will be no immediate changes for citizens and businesses in their day-to-day dealings.

The EU and the UK have started negotiations on a new future relationship agreement which, if agreed, is due to come into effect from 1 January 2021.
