UK Government launches new campaign for end of transition period

As the UK did not request a further extension to the transition period, the UK is set to leave the EU Customs Union by end of this year. Trade as we knew it will change.


The campaign is providing guidelines on the following themes:


  • Travelling to the EU

  • Staying in the UK if you are an EU Citizen

  • Continue living and working in the EU

  • Business that import and export goods

For businesses that export and import, some of the changes in terms of completion of customs, safety and security declarations, payment of duties and VAT will be phased out during the first 6 months of 2021, giving companies time to prepare. For more information on the new rules from January 2021, please click here


The campaign does not provide guidelines for businesses that export or import services from the EU.
