Welcome to the BCCI Brexit Updates page where you can find all recordings of our online series chaired by Avv. Steven Sprague.

The Transition Period we are currently enjoying will come to an end on 31 December 2020. On 1 January 2021, the full effects of Brexit will be felt by everyone doing business between the European Union and the United Kingdom. The trade negotiations have still not been concluded and many aspects of the future trading relationship remain uncertain. From 15 October (Boris Johnson’s deadline for conclusion of the trade talks) until December we are hosting a bi-monthly series of streamed discussions with members of the business community, relevant authorities and experts, aimed at bringing our viewers up to date on latest developments, highlighting in so doing the major issues likely to arise and ways in which businesses can prepare for life in the post Transition Period world.
