Guidance for our Customers on the Impact of the UK leaving the European Customs Union and Single Market
The EU and UK have spent the past year negotiating the terms of a new “Trade and Cooperation Agreement” to govern future relations. An agreement in principle was reached on 24 December, with provisional application intended from 1 January 2021.
