What Companies need to know to prepare for Brexit

What Companies need to know to prepare for Brexit 

The Portuguese General Direction of Economic Activities has recently published some general guidelines about what companies need to know to prepare for Brexit, VAT issues included. 

The United Kingdom will leave the European Union (EU) at 11:00 pm of 29 March 2019; exactly two years after having notified the European Council of its intent (except if the Member States shall unanimously decide to postpone the withdrawal date).

From that moment on, the United Kingdom will become a third country and will no longer be an EU Member State. Therefore, it is urgent that companies step up their work on preparedness to this new reality.

1. Possible scenarios as from 30 March 2019
2. Responsibilities of economic operators 
3. Certificates, licenses and permits
4. Customs and Excise
5. Rules of origin
6. Prohibitions and restrictions on imports/exports of goods
