Brexit Hub

Leaving the EU brings challenges, opportunities and unanswered questions for farming.

Transition Countdown
The UK is now in a 'transition period' until December 31 2020. During this time, all laws and trading arrangements remain the same. At the beginning of 2021, the departure will become complete - hence the new countdown - unless the PM chooses to extend the transition. He has, however, pledged not to do this and codified his promise in law.

Quote Of The Week

“I think we have always put a lot of emphasis on economic and political freedom at the end of this year and on avoiding ongoing significant payments into the EU budget.

“And, of course, those things are accomplished by ending the transition period at the end of the year”
- UK chief negotiator David Frost

Brexit Prep Tip

See Brexit as an opportunity to evaluate your business

“Profit as a percentage of turnover is not very widely used, but farmers should be looking to target 15 per cent. At that level they would be able to afford to invest, draw a reasonable living and have a business which is sustainable for the future.”

Mike Houghton, Andersons, speaking at the Dairy Show
