The transition period

The UK has left the EU and is in a transition period until 31 December 2020. Until 31 December 2020, the way the UK trades with the EU or the rest of the world will not change. 

Throughout the transition period negotiations that have taken place, Welsh Government has continued to take action to stand up for and protect Wales’ interests. 

The UK Government and the EU have now agreed a deal on their future relationship and subject to the deal being ratified in the UK and the EU, from the start of January 2021 the new relationship will take effect. As a responsible government we have done all we can to prepare for the UK’s exit from the EU, taking action to protect the interests of Wales and its people.

We have published our End of Transition Action Plan which responds to the challenges we face as we approach the end of the transition period. 

We will provide information for Welsh citizens and business via this dedicated website, which will continue to give and signpost up-to-date advice to help you, your families and your businesses prepare for any changes that will affect you.
