Brexit Update - Tech Companies: What the end of the transition period mean for you

29 October 2020

09:00 - 10:35

With the end of the Brexit transition period looming on 31 December 2020, we are holding a virtual meeting of our Brexit Working Group for Tech Companies where we will discuss the business implications at the end of the transition period.

We will provide a stocktake on the status of “Deal/No Deal” and will focus on a range of practical issues for Tech companies that need to be addressed once the UK leaves the EU Single Market and EU Customs Union.

We hope you are able to join us. Please register using the RSVP button below.

Questions will be taken during the webinar but if you'd like anything specific to be addressed, please let us know here.
