Ten questions the UK government needs to answer to enable businesses to prepare for the end of post-Brexit transition
CGE Trade Policy Group
We are now less than 6 months away from the end of the transition period. Our trading companies are already overloaded pushing their businesses through the COVID-19 crisis. It has never been more important that they know what they need to prepare for in the coming months. Having extensively researched the ﬁeld, we feel that clarity is needed over new administrative requirements and border procedures, many of which are not dependent on whether the future relationship negotiations end without an agreement or with the kind of Free Trade Agreement – without extensive regulatory alignment – envisaged by the government. Whichever option occurs will require major change for companies who import or export to Europe.
