The United Kingdom has made it clear with its strong support of Boris Johnson in December’s general election: It wants to “get Brexit done.” Assuming the European Union signs the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, the UK is set to leave the EU next week, on Jan. 31. So what does this mean for your corporate travel program and business travelers? Our Brexit Readiness team, which has been monitoring the Brexit negotiations since the referendum in 2016, breaks it all down in the Q&A here.
The good news is little is changing during the “implementation period” from Jan. 31 to Dec. 31, 2020. However, because Brexit could have a significant impact on business travel in 2021, we will be featuring a series of Brexit articles on individual topics over the next few months, so you have plenty of time to prepare.
