During the transition period, the UK is no longer a member state of the EU, but market access will continue on current terms. To give businesses and citizens certainty, common rules remain in place until 31 December 2020.
The legal form of an EEIG is an EU specific entity, established under EU law. The withdrawal agreement means that the UK remains part of the EEIG framework during the transition period.
It is expected that the UK will no longer be able to participate in the EEIG framework after the end of the transition period. So our guidance on changes to company registration will apply for EEIGs from 1 January 2021.
