Brexit – where are we now?

As the UK moves into a new relationship with the EU, what do charities and social enterprises need to know? Our new briefing provides guidance across key areas of law.

The United Kingdom is now in a new relationship with the European Union. After many months of negotiations, an agreement on the future partnership was eventually reached in the final days of 2020.  For the most part, EU law no longer has direct effect in the UK, but much EU law has been integrated into our domestic legal system.

But what does this mean in practice for charities and social enterprises?

Bates Wells has written a briefing outlining how UK law is affected by Brexit, and what the UK’s new relationship with Europe is likely to mean for your organisation in these areas:

  • Data protection
  • State aid/ Subsidy control
  • Competition
  • Procurement
  • Funding for social impact
  • Employment
  • Trade Marks
  • VAT
  • Cross border disputes
  • Immigration
