When will the UK leave the EU?

The UK will cease to be a member of the EU at midnight on March 30th 2019, as determined by the two-year exit period set out in Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. The UK has said that it is seeking a transition period, beginning on March 30 2019, and lasting no more than 2 years, during which the UK would continue to participate in the Single Market and Customs Union. The guidelines set out by the European Commission for the transition period, say EU law would continue to apply to the UK “as if it were a member state” for this period.
