Factbox-Brexit and the City of London: what changes and when?

Quote from the article

"Clearly this is ludicrous for one country, but imagine if every country in the world had the same idea.


The EU from July 2021 will impose new vat rules requiring:

For non-EU suppliers – which will, of course, include UK suppliers – there will be a requirement for sellers to charge VAT at the point of sale for consignments of €150 or below. This will be based on the VAT position in the customers’ member state with the VAT reported on a single OSS declaration. There will be a requirement to register in one EU member state in which to file the OSS declarations and there may be a need to appoint a tax representative.

So in fact 27 more counties will be implementing the same rule.

What’s interesting is for years they’ve already been required to register for UK vat since to sell within the EU you must impose vat of the destination country and must register for vat in every EU country you sell to.

EU share trading flees London on first day after full Brexit

Business rerouted to newly created European hubs and primary exchanges

London’s financial sector started to feel the full effects of Brexit on the first trading day of 2021 as nearly €6bn of EU share dealing shifted away from the City to facilities in European capitals.

Trading in equities such as Santander, Deutsche Bank and Total moved to EU marketplaces or back to primary exchanges such as the Madrid, Frankfurt and Paris bourses, according to data from Refinitiv — an abrupt change for investors in London who have grown accustomed to trading shares in Europe across borders without restrictions.

What’s started?

Emergency use of pesticides is allowed in the EU. at least 16 different EU states have made use of emergency authorisations of banned pesticides. As far as i can see from a quick look, at least 60+ were granted in 2019 and 20+ were granted in 2020, with further being authorised for this year in the EU.

This is irrelevant to Brexit, unless we want to use the reduced red tape to improve the emergency use legislation?
