On 24 December 2020, after rollercoaster negotiations, the UK and EU announced they had agreed a post-Brexit TCA. At 11pm on December 31 2020 the Brexit implementation period ended, and the UK exited the EU Single Market and the Customs Union. The TCA provides for zero tariffs and quotas. It represents a fundamental shift in the EU-UK relationship with substantially reduced market access but greater UK autonomy. Phillip Souta, head of UK Public Policy at Clifford Chance, examines what the TCA covers, what it doesn’t, and what happens next. See News Analysis: Comment—Relieved?

As the Brexit transition period came to an end at 11pm on 31 December 2020, marking IP completion day in the UK, the government published over 300 items of new and updated Brexit transition guidance.
