The two year period in which the UK and the EU will negotiate the UK’s terms of withdrawal from the EU remains unchanged and moves on relentlessly.
If no agreement on the arrangements for the UK’s withdrawal is reached, Brexit will occur on 29 March 2019 unless all Member States unanimously agree otherwise. There may be a transition period from 30 March 2019 to 31 December 2020.
On 26 June 2018, the government issued a Press Release stating that the EU (Withdrawal) Bill has received Royal Assent, becoming the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The Act will establish the legislative framework for the UK's scheduled withdrawal from the EU on 29 March 2019. The government is now expected to start using the powers in the Act to amend primary and secondary legislation so that this functions on and after exit day. The government has estimated that around 800 pieces of secondary legislation will be required.
Here you will find all the latest information and guidance to navigate you through the legal implications of Brexit for the next few years.
