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.
