The UK Government and the EU have now agreed a deal on their future relationship. From 1 January 2021 this new relationship with the EU will begin.
The new relationship will have a big effect on Scotland as the UK will leave both the EU single market and the customs union.
Here are some useful links to advice and guidance for citizens and businesses dealing with the new arrangements with Europe:
- UK Government: Get Ready for Brexit
- Scottish Government: EU Exit
- Citizens Advice Scotland: EU Exit (Brexit) Advice
For information on living in Scotland after EU exit, visit the Scottish Government's EU citizens page.
Local businesses doing business in Europe are advised to consult the new guidance.

For exporting businesses the pages on the gov.uk site give more information.
Scottish Enterprise also has information for businesses and a step-by-step guide on its Prepare for Brexit pages.
