Brexit highlights: What’s next?

The UK may have officially left the EU as of 11pm on 31 January 2020 (exit day), but Brexit is far from over.

Though the UK is no longer an EU Member State and will no longer participate in the political institutions and governance structures of the EU, under the transitional arrangements provided in Part 4 of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK has now entered an 11-month implementation period.

During this time the UK will continue to be treated by the EU as a Member State.

So, what happens next?

Within the implementation period—which runs from exit day until 11pm on 31 December 2020 (IP completion day)—the UK must continue to comply with its obligations under EU law and submit to the continuing jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement.

We have put together this chart of the key Brexit milestones, looking at the story so far vs what we know of the future:
