The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 came into force on 26th June 2018. In-the-event
that the UK reaches an agreement on a Brexit deal, the transition period will start on 30th
March 2019 and will last until 31st December 2020.
We anticipate that little if anything will change for companies trading between the UK and the EU during this transition period.
In-light-of recent political events Indestructible Paint is preparing for a “no deal” Brexit if no
agreement is reached by 29th March 2019 and immediate transfer to World Trade Organisation

potential outcome and we would also encourage you to make appropriate preparations for
your own business.

We are constantly monitoring the situation regarding cost implications of Brexit including the
possibility of holding additional stock and if necessary, stocking in Europe. Any additional costs
imposed would be discussed with customers prior to implementation.
