Brexit Update

The UK’s official departure date from the European Union on Friday 29 March 2019 is less than 100 days away.

Last November (14 November 2018), the draft Withdrawal Agreement detailing the UK’s manner of departure from the European Union was published as agreed by the negotiators on both sides.

This withdrawal agreement was approved by the UK Cabinet on the day of its publication, however the ‘meaningful vote’ in the UK Parliament on whether this agreement should be accepted by the UK was deferred from its original date in December 2018 to the new date of 15 January 2019.

While government and business have been planning ‘no deal’ contingency preparations, we believe that a smooth transition process is what is best for future Irish/UK business, competitiveness and growth.
