There will be a hard Brexit and the UK will leave the EU in 2019 without a new deal. 

There will be a withdrawal agreement and a transition period until end of 2020. 

The Brexit scenarios

At this point it remains uncertain if and how exactly the UK will leave the EU. Why is leaving on March 30, 2019 considered a hard Brexit? When would an extension until the end of 2020 come to pass? And what's an exit from Brexit? Here are the facts.

Exit from Brexit

The UK remains in the EU – and the trade relationship remains unchanged. The UK is part of the Customs Union.

Hard Brexit

The UK leaves the EU and the Customs Union and becomes a third country. EU free trade agreements no longer apply to the UK.

Export Controls: Checking dual-use goods

In terms of exports, the UK will become a third country when it leaves the EU and license requirements apply to trading dual-use goods. IT solutions automate all relevant export control checks for you and efficiently manage all your licenses. 

Customs Filing: Mastering declarations

The volume of customs declarations will tremendously increase. Whether you self-manage your import and export filing or work with customs brokers: IT solutions automate and integrate your customs processes so you can master changes successfully. 

Origin and Preferences: Recalculating

Trade agreements determine the preferential treatment of your goods and once the UK leaves the EU, new calculations will be required and new supplier's declarations need to be managed. IT solutions helps master the process efficiently and compliantly.  

Product Classification: New customs codes

Applicable customs rule and tariff changes under Brexit will need to be reflected in your product master data to ensure compliance and efficiency. Smart IT solutions help master the challenge in addition to other frequent global trade master data updates.
