Brexit

Prepa­ra­tions for Brex­it

In November 2018, the European Commission and the United Kingdom agreed on a Withdrawal Agreement and a political declaration on the future relationship. While the German government is assuming that Britain’s withdrawal from the EU will be orderly, it is also preparing for a possible “no deal” scenario. Our dedicated Brexit page includes important information on preparations for Brexit in the areas of financial markets, customs, budgetary issues and taxation.
