On 9 July, the EU Commission issued a Communication to help national authorities, businesses and citizens prepare for the changes that will arise at the end of the Brexit transition period (31 December 2020).
This notice sets out an overview of the main areas where there will be changes regardless of the outcome of the ongoing EU-UK negotiations, and sets out measures that national authorities, businesses and citizens should take in order to be ready for these changes. The documents focusses on trade in goods, trade in services, travel and mobility, data and international agreement; the document is therefore relevant to all sectors.
CTPA encourages companies to especially focus on section A of the document, which explains how customs checks and control will change, together with taxation rules. CTPA is also working to update its Brexit advice page, compile detailed advice and arrange a number of resources based on the latest developments.
