Since 1 February 2020, the United Kingdom has no longer been part of the European Union. Since March 2020, the European Union and the UK have been negotiating on their future relationship. It is not certain that they will succeed in concluding such a treaty before 1 January 2021. In this sense, a so-called ‘no-deal Brexit’ is still possible.
But, in any case, from 1 January 2021 onwards, the current relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom will change for businesses. Even if the European Union and the United Kingdom conclude a partnership agreement, the free movement of goods as we know it right now will come to an end.
In case of a no-deal Brexit all trade between the United Kingdom and the European Union will then be subject to the rules of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). In addition to the border controls and customs procedures that will inevitably apply from 1 January 2021, import tariffs will also apply.
