EU Exit

The end of the transition period on December 31 2020 marked a major point of change for businesses operating across the UK and EU. The terms of trade for businesses have changed and the UK will no longer have the same access to EU institutions and programmes. techUK's EU Exit programme provides the latest guidance for businesses as the UK's relationship with the EU evolves as well as support on how to prepare for new business conditions.
