Brexit news:
EU exit 31st of January

Dear Sir / Madam,

Great Britain’s withdrawal from the EU is moving forward, and therefore we would like to inform you about the current developments. 

European Parliament has ratified Brexit on the 29th of January. As a consequence, the United Kingdom will no longer be a member of the European Union after 23:00 GMT on 31 January 2020. After Brexit, the so-called transitional phase will begin, which should last until the end of this year. During this time, London and Brussels should negotiate the terms of a future partnership, including trade relations.During this transitional phase, we expect no or only minor changes in the processing of goods- and service transactions. Therefore, we will continue to process your shipments and transports as usual.

A crucial aspect of the transitional phase is the development of a free trade agreement between the EU and the UK. However, experts consider the given period as too short to finalise such an arrangement.

Alternatively, an extension of the transitional phase until 2021 or 2022 also remains a possibility.

We have summarized for you all the important information see here.

We will keep you informed about further developments in this matter. In the meantime, please refer to your contact person at Geis, should any questions remain.

Kind regards
Your Geis team
