Brexit information for customs agents and software developers

Great Britain (GB) and Northern Ireland (NI) are formally no longer a member of the European Union (EU). However, the Withdrawal Agreement provides for a transition period until 31 December 2020.

During this period, Great Britain and Northern Ireland will continue for the purposes of the movement of goods, services and people, as if it were a full EU Member State.

Provisions relating to Northern Ireland are covered by the revised Protocol to the Withdrawal Agreement effective from 1 January 2021.
