The UK has left the EU.

There is now a transition period until the end of 2020 while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements. The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period.

New rules will take effect on 1 January 2021.

We will continue to update this section with details of events across the region as well as helpful information to support businesses based in Dorset prepare for new rules in 2021.
