Webinar-Review: How Brexit affects UK and German E-Commerce Companies

This webinar provided an overview of the changes that will affect e-commerce retailers both in Germany and in the UK business from January 1, 202,  and what preparations you may already make.

Event: Oct 26, 2020 9:30 Location: Online | Webinar

Brexit negotiations are in their final phase. It is still unclear whether an agreement on future trade relations between Britain and the EU can be concluded and, if so, what it will involve. However,  it is clear that the changes will have a lasting impact on economic relations and also on e-commerce on both sides of the Channel.

Germany Trade & Invest has joined forces with the German Federal Association of E-Commerce (bevh) and the Department of International Trade to held this UK-German webinar.

In addition to a report on the status of the negotiations, we took a closer look at a wide range of topics from customs and VAT to other relevant legal aspects (including data protection and trademark law) when establishing a company in Germany.
