On January 1st, 2021, Brexit – the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union – will be complete. This move will have many economic impacts. The world of EDI is no exception. Do you have a company based in the UK? Does your company have trading partners there? If so, it’s important to consider the EDI changes you must make.

For example, if a company in the UK is selling to a company in an EU country, they will need to change the tax code in their EDI message from what it was pre-Brexit. At this point, it will be the same as if the UK company was selling to a non-EU country. As always, it’s important to keep your trading partners informed of these changes.
