On 31st December 2020, the Transition Period for the UK to leave the European Union will end. At present there is still no confirmation of the full conditions (with or without a deal) of the departure of the UK from the EU.
Over the last few days PM Johnson has been in talks with EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen but negotiations between the UK and the EU are continuing.
Without knowing the full details, the GGF is now advising all companies to visit the Government’s website to stay ahead of any breaking news, as regardless of a deal or no deal you will be affected by the change and it is advisable to prepare for changes.
