04 January 2021 Brexit and Data Protection from January 2021

On December 24th 2020 the EU and the UK finally struck a deal over Brexit and, most notably for HCS, reached a Trade and Co-operation Agreement. 

Leading up to the UK’s exit from the EU, HCS staff had ensured we were fully prepared in regard to data protection and the impact the UK being considered a ‘third country’ could have had on our invoicing processes.  We were prepared for whichever outcome came about.

However, with a deal being struck in literally the final days, data can flow from the EU into the UK and from the UK into the EU in the same way as it has done since GDPR came into law in May 2018. 

Between the EU and UK there is a ‘specified’ four-month period for this, which could be extended to six, but it is hoped, and is very likely, that within that time an ‘adequacy’ agreement will be reached. 

Despite being prepared for either outcome, it is fantastic news for all our EU customers and future relations that we can continue to trade so efficiently .
