TRADE AND TRANSITION SUPPORT FOR BUSINESSES
On 31 December 2020, the Brexit transition period ended. A new Trade Co-operation Agreement governing future trading relations between the UK and the EU came into law on 1 January 2021.
There will be no tariffs or quotas on the movement between the UK and the EU. Your business should make changes to ensure the flow of people, data, goods and services continue as the UK is no longer in the Single Market or Customs Union.
Details and guidance on this can be found in the links below. Members of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce will be able to access news, updates, analysis and support to help them understand what these changes mean for their business.
