Getting Ireland Brexit Ready

Published: 6 November 2019
From: Department of the Taoiseach

The UK is due to leave the European Union. How and when they may leave is not yet certain.

The EU and the UK have agreed an extension to 31 January 2020 with the aim of ensuring an orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU.

Irrespective of the final shape of Brexit, the decision of the UK to leave the EU will result in some changes, both here in Ireland and for our EU partners, which we will continue to prepare for.

While there is still some uncertainty, it’s important for you to be aware of what Brexit may mean for your business and your daily life.

Whether you're a concerned citizen or wondering how Brexit may affect your business, the aim of this government website is to help start you getting prepared.

We are working to keep this website up-to-date. Check back regularly, as information is updated as it becomes available.
