The Withdrawal Agreement entered into force on 1 February 2020, following its agreement of 17 October 2019 and the Political Declaration establishing the framework for the future partnership between the EU and the United Kingdom. At the request of the United Kingdom, the European Council (Article 50) has twice agreed on an extension of the period provided for in Article 50(3) TEU (initially from 21 March 2019 to 22 May 2019 if the House of Commons approves the Withdrawal Agreement no later than 29 March 2019 and then from 10 April 2019 to 31 October 2019). From 1 January 2021, the UK will no longer be part of the single market or the customs union. Even if an agreement on the future relationship is reached by the end of the year, the EU`s relationship with the UK will fundamentally change and will be very different from when the UK was a member of the single market. Take, for example, the customs and tax formalities that are then necessary. Following an unprecedented vote on 4 December 2018, MPs decided that the UK government was flouting Parliament for refusing to give Parliament all the legal advice it had received on the impact of its proposed withdrawal conditions. [29] The key point of the opinion concerned the legal effect of the “backstop” agreement for Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the rest of the UK with regard to the EU-UK customs border and its impact on the Good Friday Agreement, which had led to an end to the unrest in Northern Ireland – and in particular whether the UK would be safe, to be able to leave the EU in the practical sense of the term, according to the draft proposals. .
