Countdown to Exit: UK's new trading relationship with the EU

Britain officially left the European Union at the beginning of this year, and the transition period is drawing to a close on 31 December 2020. But what now? The European Union and the UK are in ongoing negotiations on the important future trading relationship, scarred by the outbreak of the pandemic. Despair mixed with hope is communicated in the media, with the political stakes as high as they can be. As Britain approaches the end of the transition period, what can we expect? How do we prepare, and what actions do we need to take?

This webinar gives you a broad picture of the state of the ongoing negotiations and its impact on the future relationship between the UK and the EU. Hear from our experts on their take on the state of play, and from businesses on how they’ve prepared over the past few years, what scenarios they’re working towards and how it’s expected to impact them.

Take the unique opportunity and listen to, and ask questions directly to, our range of experts on customs, compliance, regulation, establishment and immigration – deal or no deal.
