Brexit NIC After A No Deal Brexit

January 2019

As part of its prudent planning to cope with a no-deal Brexit should that occur, the Government has recently addressed the amendments that would be needed to UK NIC legislation. 

The key problem in this area is that the current cross border social security arrangements are dependent on coordination between EU/EEA Member States - not something that can be assumed in a no-deal Brexit scenario. Therefore, the Government has published four draft Statutory Instruments that amend the UK's EU Regulations on social security coordination.
