Brexit - a great step closer

The British government has just announced that the letter that will formally trigger the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU will be sent on 29 March. Plesner's Brexit task force follows developments closely and still recommends that clients bide their time.

Next week, Prime Minister Teresa May will send the letter to the EU that will formally activate the EU Treaty's Article 50 on withdrawal. A process of negotiations between the British government and the EU about the arrangements for withdrawal will follow.

It is expected to take approximately two years to reach an agreement on the exit terms and the future trade conditions between the United Kingdom and the EU.

Wait and see

The United Kingdom's letter of withdrawal will have no immediate legal effect on businesses as EU law and UK law will still apply without any changes for the time being. Accordingly, the future legal framework is still uncertain.

Plesner's Brexit task force still finds that the final conditions for undertakings doing business with the United Kingdom have still not been clarified sufficiently and that undertakings should bide their time.
