The UK voted to leave the European Union in June 2016. Following the ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK left the EU at 11pm on 31 January 2020 and entered the transition period.
The transition period is due to end on 31 December 2020 with negotiations on the future UK/EU trading arrangements, as well as on how the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland will be implemented, currently taking place.
As things stand, there is still uncertainty around what will happen after the transition period and what impact this will have on the wider financial services sector in the future.
Those uncertainties may have implications for the banking services we provide, and we are continuing our work on potential Brexit impacts. If there are going to be changes to the services we provide, we will let you know.
To help customers understand what Brexit means for the services we deliver, we have put together answers to some frequently asked questions.
Please note that any references to European Economic Area, EEA, European Union, EU, Europe or Member State(s) in any of our documentation shall be deemed to include the United Kingdom during the transition period.
