About BCCI Brexit Updates:

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 will be 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.


10 December at 2:00pm CET


Episode 5: Diritto Societario e Gestione del Personale 

Brexit – the impact on people movement across borders

With 31 December 2020 and the end of the European Union Withdrawal Act drawing near, businesses face significant uncertainty. A ‘no deal Brexit’ would increase that uncertainty. Our session will focus on people moving, and working, across borders. We look at the impact of Brexit on immigration between Italy and the UK, social security, employment law, global mobility issues and a great deal more. Join us to hear what practical steps can be taken now, and to consider the landscape for cross-border employment post Brexit – deal or no deal!
