In a referendum on 23 June 2016, over half of the participating UK electorate voted to leave the European Union. On 29 March 2017 the UK government triggered Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union to formally start the separation process. “Brexit Day” 29 March 2019, will mark the beginning of the Transition Period which will take place until 31 December 2020.  Full separation will begin at the start of 2021.
