What does it all mean and when will it happen?

1. Will there be a transition period? If the UK and the EU conclude a withdrawal agreement before the UK leaves the EY, yes until 31/12/2020

2. During the transition period, most EU law will still apply to the UK

3. At the end of the transition period the withdrawal agreement aims to avoid short term disruption by clarifying what will happen when EU rules stop applying to the UK

4. Also at the end of the transition period, the main provisions of the Protocol on Northern Ireland to the withdrawal agreement would come into effect. That requires NI to remain aligned to specified EU single market and customs rules need to avoid a hard border in Ireland.

5. I no withdrawal agreement is concluded by exit day (now extended to 31 January 2020) and if there is no further extension of the Article 50 period, and the Article 50 notice is not revoked, the UK will still leave under Article 50 but with no deal. This means there will be no transition period.

Departments across government are holding events to help your business get ready for Brexit

Pop-up help for logistics to prepare for Brexit

The Department for Transport is setting up information pop-up stands across the UK and Europe to help transport and businesses prepare for Brexit, so that goods can continue to flow smoothly through ports. The pop-ups will be located at ports, service stations and on ferries to provide easily accessible advice, helping hauliers understand the documentation they need for themselves, their vehicles and their goods after Brexit. All stands will be staffed by multilingual advisors.
