From 1 January 2021, businesses must navigate a divergent UK-EU trade and competition regime for the first time in over forty years. The immediate priority is to ensure compliance with the new rules and regulations. Longer-term, business should also engage with the evolving ‘global Britain’ policy, and understand the risks as well as the opportunities as the UK re-engages with global relationships beyond the EU.
