Brexit

Progress in Brex­it ne­go­ti­a­tions

As of 1 February 2020, the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the European Union. Initially nothing will change for citizens and businesses, because a transition period will apply until the end of 2020. Our dedicated Brexit page includes important information on Brexit in the areas of financial markets, customs, budgetary issues and taxation.

The European Commission has created a dedicated page on Brexit preparedness, which provides comprehensive information on preparedness notices, legislative initiatives and other preparedness activities.
