How Will Brexit Affect You?

11 Jan, 2021

The Brexit transition period ended on 31st December 2020 meaning, from the 1st January, the free movement of people and good services between the UK and the EU ended.  Here are some of the key points that may affect your business:

Traveling to the EU
If you travel to the EU for work purposes, you make require a visa or work permit.  In addition, you are advised to check the validity of your passport, travel insurance, data roaming charges with your mobile provider and driving documentation.  Find out more here.

Employing EU Citizens
If you employed an EU citizen in 2020, their rights remain the same until 30 June 2021.  Afterwards, they will need to check they can stay and will usually need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme or become a UK citizen.

If you are looking to hire staff from outside the UK, you must be a home licensed sponsor.  Anyone coming to the UK will need to meet a specific set of requirements under the new point-based immigration system.  Find out more here.

Buying and Selling Goods
If you buy or sell with the EU you will need to make customs declarations as if you were dealing with countries elsewhere in the world.  Some products, including plants, live animals and foods may also require a special license and certificate or be labelled in a specific way.

Professional Qualifications
There is no automatic recognition of professional qualifications so you will need to check each country’s rules to ensure your qualifications are still recognised.
