The European Commission has today stepped up its “no-deal” outreach to EU businesses in the area of customs and indirect taxation such as VAT, given the risk that the United Kingdom may leave the EU on 30 March this year without a deal (a “no-deal” scenario).

The outreach campaign launched today is part of the Commission's ongoing efforts to prepare for the UK's exit of the European Union without a deal, in line with the European Council (Article 50) conclusions of December 2018, calling for intensified preparedness work for all scenarios.

Launch of the EU 45 stories exhibition

This exhibition illustrates just some of the ways in which Ireland has benefitted from EU membership over the past four and a half decades. It includes stories from every county and across many sectors, including agriculture, culture, education, business, environment, health and consumer protection.

The exhibition is on a nationwide tour until July 2019, following its successful launch in Leinster House in 2018.
