Brexit Latest

We had expected to know the outcome of the UK/EU trade negotiations by Sunday 13th December, however, further time has been granted to both teams to continue to try and seek a deal.
This deal is about the continued relationship between the UK and EU moving forward in regard to trade. Regardless, of this outcome, we already know that from 1 January 2021:

The new points-based immigration system will be in place. So, anybody arriving in the UK after 1 January 2021 will require a visa to work. This applies to EU and non-EU nationals.

Those EU nationals currently living and working in the UK have until 30 June 2021 to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme, if they wish to continue working in the UK after Brexit

From 1 July 2021, it will mean that to recruit from outside of the UK, the applicant will either need pre settled/settled status or a relevant visa.
