11 February 2021 -

February 11th, 2021 –10.00 am – 13.30 am


On January 1st, 2021 the United Kingdom definitively left the European Union, effectively becoming a third country. Consequently, the regime of free movement of goods, services, persons and capital between the United Kingdom and the European Union definitively ended, while the new regime of rules and formalities provided for by the “Trade and Cooperation Agreement”, signed on December 24th, 2020 between the European Union and the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland (hereinafter “Agreement”), has come into force.

The webinar is aimed at analyzing the most relevant Brexit critical issues the companies may face in their commercial practice.

The webinar illustrates the new specific rules for determining and proving the preferential origin of goods. In fact, with respect to customs matters the Agreement mitigates the impact of Brexit, especially with reference to the elimination of customs duties and quotas on goods imported into the UK, provided however that companies prove that their products meet the requirements for the acquisition of preferential origin set out in the Agreement.

The webinar addresses the main VAT issues deriving from the exclusion of the UK from the application of the EU VAT system, as governed by Directive 2006/112/EC.

The webinar analyzes the provisions of the Agreement relating to the mobility of employees, with particular reference to the new coordination system on social security applicable to EU employees posted to the UK and British employees posted to the European Union, as well as the provisions on visa exemption for short-term trips.

The webinar has a practical approach; the speakers are professionals with a long and consolidated experience in advising on contractual, corporate, tax and customs aspects of international trade.

The speech is in Italian.
