The UK’s exit from the EU was an unprecedented event. EU Member States ensure the free movement of goods throughout almost all of Europe. However, the unification of regulations and great facilitation required the abandonment of many export mechanisms of all countries. In return, it was possible to gain great benefits from free trade.
For these reasons, the UK’s exit did not happen overnight. For many companies, such a scenario would mean not only huge problems, but even the inevitable spectre of bankruptcy. Before the EU was reduced by one country, there were hundreds of talks at the highest levels. Even agreeing on the details did not result in immediate changes – these were introduced gradually. This was for the purpose of two important aspects. Firstly, it gave time for stakeholders to adapt to the new rules. In addition, it was supposed to mitigate such large changes.
