WE ARE LESS THAN SIX MONTHS FROM BREXIT

THE OUTCOMES OF NEGOTIATIONS REMAIN UNCLEAR

On Friday March 29, 2019 at 11pm GMT, the UK is set to leave the EU. Though there are increasing demands from different sides on a new referendum, or a so called “people’s vote” on the final deal reached between the UK and the EU, most commentators and experts believe that the UK will leave the EU in March of next year.

Though the outcome of the UK-EU talks remains unclear, the relationship between the two parties, and subsequently the trading relationship, is certain to change.

Brexit - trade facilitation Mats Soderstrom

No matter the solution, Brexit will imply changes in customs procedures.

Rules governing export to third countries differ significantly from those governing trade within the EU customs union. When the UK leaves the EU, trade from Sweden to the UK are likely to be to a third country, outside the EU customs area. In our guide you can read about the rules that apply to export outside of the EU (in Swedish). You can also sign up for our Brexit course that will be held the 16th of January (in Swedish). 

Companies that formulate strategies for managing the uncertainty surrounding Brexit will be able to act faster when the outcome of Brexit becomes clearer – enabling them to be in a better position to compete.

PREPARE FOR BREXIT

Britain's decision to activate Article 50 and the subsequent ambiguity about the Brexit negotiations have created great uncertainty for Swedish companies, leading to a dilemma: Either act today or defer action and risk being unprepared when faced with possibly even bigger negative effects.

Though some forerunner companies have already taken action, many however remain insufficiently prepared for the British exit from the EU.
