From 1 January 2021, the decision of the UK to leave the EU will take effect, with very significant consequences for businesses in Ireland, the extent of which may only become clear over time, as the Irish, UK and EU economies adjust.
While the UK vote, as a result of the 12-month transition period, did not mean an immediate change to the legal relationship between the UK and the EU, the task of disentangling the UK legal system from the EU has required new legislation both in Ireland and at the supranational EU level, with both implications and opportunities for Irish businesses. If they haven't already started, businesses must now consider the legal consequences for their operations and plan for the post-Brexit future.
In this page we include articles setting out the legal and business impacts and changes under various headings, as well as articles of interest to businesses considering a move to Ireland.
