Today’s Brexit Extension

Expat Academy Today's Brexit Extension On October 28th, the EU agreed a new ‘flextension’ of the Article 50 period until 31 January 2020, with the option of the UK leaving earlier if the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified in time. The government and some opposition parties are now expected to try to call a general election, which could lead to a new government with a different Brexit policy.

While Brexit on October 31st has now been avoided, there are still several possible outcomes for which you must prepare:

  • a no-deal Brexit on 1 February if the Withdrawal Agreement has not been ratified;
  • the UK and EU parliaments could ratify the Withdrawal Agreement by 31 January, and Brexit could take place on the first of the month after ratification;
  • a further extension request; or
  • the UK government could unilaterally revoke Article 50, possibly following a second referendum or general election, effectively canceling Brexit.

Whichever outcome lies ahead, Newland Chase has you covered. Learn more by reading our quick reaction blog post to today’s announcement here.
