UK and EU: news on the future relationship - 07/05/2021

Last week, the European Parliament ratified the Trade and Co-operation Agreement (TCA), also known as the post-Brexit EU-UK trade deal, which effectively entered into force on 1 May 2021. This was the last step to cement the ongoing partnership between the UK and EU. REC will keep lobbying on behalf of members to ensure issues such as business travel, and mutual recognition of professional qualifications are resolved as smoothly as possible. In addition, the first set of Government guidance for travelling to work in some EU member states is now available and can be accessed here.

As for the future relationship with the EU, 30th June is fast approaching is the closing date to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme on 30 June 2021. Although you cannot ask for proof of status before that date, you should incentivise your employees to apply to preserve their right to legally live and work in the UK going forward.
