Brexit – Information for Employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry

Brexit – Information for Employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry

As we fast approach the October 2019 deadline for when the UK leaves the European Union, “Brexit” dominates our news headlines daily but it can be extremely hard to keep up with, let alone understand what is happening and what to expect. This article was written for the March 2019 deadline, which of course has been and gone…so although the dates have moved on, the content remains valid.

As an international recruitment agency, we place many British Grooms in jobs within the EU, and many EU citizens into jobs within the UK, so… what about information for Employers and Grooms in the equine industry? We know the uncertainty surrounding Brexit is a concern for many equine workers and employers, so we have picked out the most relevant, up to date information from UK Government sources and we have attempted to demystify some of the key elements which are relevant to the people we talk with daily.

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - what is happening?

The purpose of this article is not to discuss the suitability of any arrangements, or even Brexit itself, but purely to help equine employers and employees find their way through mountains of important information to find the answers to the most common questions about what to expect.

 

As things stand now

At the time of writing this article (14th February 2019), an agreement between Great Britain and the EU has not been finalised and some matters may be subject to further change, especially if the UK reaches a mutual agreement with the EU within these last few weeks.

However, the Government has recently published guidelines of proposed actions according to the current negotiations and agreements, and also in the event of the UK Government failing to reach an agreement with the EU over the UK’s withdrawal.

 

What you need to know

There are 3 important phrases you will hear regarding Brexit:

  1. the Withdrawal Agreement
  2. the Implementation Period
  3. a No-Deal Brexit

In this article we will pull together key information for employers and grooms in the equine industry:

  1. British equine workers living in and working with horses in other EU countries (often referred to as “EU Member States”)
  2. EU citizens living in and working with horses in Great Britain/the UK
  3. Taking pets to and from EU countries
  4. Travelling horses to and from EU countries

 

A simple explanation of “the Withdrawal Agreement”

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - the Withdrawal Agreement

The Withdrawal Agreement is the term used for the mutual agreement (the deal) between the UK and the European Union on the terms under which the UK will be removed as an EU Member State. This will include factors which will affect the equine industry, such as:

  • British equine workers in EU countries
  • Equine workers from EU countries working in the UK
  • Taking pets to and from the EU when you start or leave job
  • Travelling horses between the UK and other EU countries, when you start or leave a job, or as part of your job

This deal has not yet been agreed upon, and the Government is still negotiating a Withdrawal Agreement as the favoured arrangement for leaving the EU.

 

 

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - the Implementation PeriodA simple explanation of “the Implementation Period”

The Implementation Period is the term used for the period in time after the 29th March 2019 in which to make Britain’s transition from being an EU Member State to operating outside of the European Union. This time frame is often referred to as the “transition period” but Implementation Period is the official term.

Currently the Implementation Period is from 29th March 2019 to 31st December 2020 but it is possible that it may be extended to 31st December 2022, depending on the final terms under which Britain leaves the EU.

 

 

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - a No-Deal BrexitThe meaning of a “No-Deal Brexit”

A No-Deal Brexit will occur if the British Government cannot finalise a Withdrawal Agreement with the EU before the 29th March 2019. This affects how the Implementation Period will be handled and for how long.

The Government states, “Delivering the deal negotiated with the EU remains the government’s top priority. This has not changed”.

However, as long as a deal cannot be agreed upon by both sides, the Government must have a “plan B” for the event of the UK leaving the EU without a Withdrawal Agreement on the terms

UK Citizens already living and working in EU Countries

Before 29th March 2019

The Government says, “Until the UK leaves the EU, the UK remains a full member of the EU and UK nationals retain their legal status as EU citizens. As a UK national, there will be no change to your rights and status if you live in the EU while the UK remains in the EU”.

 

The Withdrawal Agreement: Negotiations on UK citizens’ rights

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - Information for EU Citizens Working in the UK

In the event of a successful Withdrawal Agreement being made, the Government has negotiated with the EU that UK Grooms lawfully living and working in an EU country:

  • will continue to have broadly the same access to healthcare, pensions and other benefits as they currently do
  • will be able to leave their EU country of residence for up to 5 years without losing their right to return, if they have acquired the relevant residency status (more on this below)
  • close family members (spouses, civil partners, unmarried partners, dependent children and grandchildren, and dependent parents and grandparents) will be able to join them, even after the end of the implementation period, on the basis of current EU rules. All family members lawfully resident with an EU citizen at the end of the implementation period will also be protected.
  • their children, born or adopted, will be covered by the agreement if they are outside their EU country of residence until and after 31 December 2020

UK Grooms and their families covered by the Agreement should note that:

  • Individual EU countries may require a Groom as a UK national, and their family members covered by the Withdrawal Agreement, to apply for a residency document or status conferring the right of residence
  • residence documents will be issued free of charge or for a charge (except for items usually chargeable, such as passports)

 

 

Brexit Information for Employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - UK Citizens working in EU countries

 

The Implementation Period: Living in the EU after 29 March 2019

During the Implementation Period (30 March 2019 to 31 December 2020), free movement rights will continue to apply to UK nationals. This means that UK nationals will be able to live in an EU country.

Grooms who are legally resident in the EU by the end of the Implementation Period (currently 31st December 2020), will be covered by the Withdrawal Agreement, and will be able to continue living in their EU country of residence, enjoying broadly the same rights to healthcare, benefits and pensions as at present.

During the Implementation Period, UK nationals will enjoy the same rights to work in an EU Member State as before Brexit.

  • if Grooms hold, before the end of the Implementation Period, a valid permanent residence document or a valid domestic immigration document conferring a permanent right to reside, they will be able to exchange it for a new residence document free of charge. Individuals may need to provide proof of identity and undergo criminality and security checks.
  • new procedures or changes to existing procedures will be decided by each individual EU country. The Government will publish details of these procedures in their Living in country guides as soon as it becomes available.

Grooms who are not covered by the Withdrawal Agreement: After the end of the Implementation Period, future arrangements will be determined by the negotiations on the UK-EU future partnership.

 

Brexit Information for Employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - UK Citizens No-Deal Brexit

 

A No-Deal Brexit: What to expect

In the event of a no-deal Brexit, continuing to live in an EU country after the UK has left the EU depends on the EU and its Member States (countries), and whether they reciprocate the UK’s offer in this policy paper on Citizens’ rights in the event of a no deal Brexit.

The UK’s offer guarantees the right of EU citizens in the UK to continue their lives broadly as now. A number of EU Member States have already given political assurances to UK Nationals about their residency rights. The European Commission has also published a No Deal Contingency Action Plan which calls upon EU Member States to take a generous approach to UK nationals who are already resident in their territory. This includes a call for EU Member States to take measures so that all UK nationals legally residing in EU Member States on 29 March 2019 will continue to be considered as legal residents of that country without change. The Government states that it will continue to work with the EU and all of the EU Member States to make sure UK nationals are given firm reassurances as soon as possible.

EU Citizens already living and working in the UK

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - Information for UK Citizens Working in the EU

Before 29th March 2019

Currently, all EU citizens are free to work in the UK under the EU’s Freedom of Movement Act.

Free movement of workers is a fundamental principle of the EU.  Citizens of EU Member States are entitled to:

  • look for a job in in the UK
  • work in the UK without needing a work permit
  • live in the UK for that purpose
  • stay in the UK even after employment has finished
  • enjoy equal treatment with UK nationals in access to employment, working conditions and all other social and tax advantages

 

The Withdrawal Agreement: Negotiations on EU citizens’ rights

The UK government has reached an agreement with the EU that will protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members living in the UK. It has also reached an agreement with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and a separate agreement with Switzerland.

These agreements mean that most citizens from the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland will need to apply to stay in the UK. They can then continue living their lives here as they do now. More on this below.

 

Brexit Information for Employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - EU Citizens living in the UK

 

The Implementation Period: Living in the UK after 29 March 2019

The new UK immigration system will be implemented from 1 January 2021 as planned, plus there will be a 6 month “grace period” for EU citizen’s living in the UK beyond the planned Implementation Period, to allow EU citizens to apply to stay in the UK. For ease, here are the basics that you need to be aware of…

 

Grooms who are currently living and working in the UK under Freedom of Movement

You’ll need to apply to stay in the UK before the end of the “Grace Period” (30 June 2021) to continue living in the UK. You’ll be able to continue living in the UK if you:

  • Successfully apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. You’ll get settled or pre-settled status if you’re successful. The scheme will open fully by 30 March 2019 – find out more by clicking here.
  • Successfully apply for British citizenship. You can apply for British citizenship if you’re eligible for it after you’ve got settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. Find out more by clicking here.
    • If you want to apply for British citizenship before you’ve got settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, you’ll need a permanent residence document. Find out more by clicking here.

 

EU Grooms who have a UK Permanent Residence Document

You’ll need to apply to stay in the UK before before the end of the “Grace Period” (30 June 2021) to continue living in the UK. You’ll be able to continue living in the UK if you:

  • Successfully apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. You’ll get settled or pre-settled status if you’re successful. The scheme will open fully by 30 March 2019 – find out more by clicking here.
  • Successfully apply for British citizenship. You can apply for British citizenship if you’re eligible for it after you’ve got settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. Find out more by clicking here.
    • If you want to apply for British citizenship before you’ve got settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, you’ll need a permanent residence document. Find out more by clicking here.
 

EU Grooms who already have valid ‘indefinite leave to remain’ or ‘indefinite leave to enter’ status from the UK Government

 

You do not need to do anything to continue living and working in the UK as you are now!

 

The Government have a useful tool on the website that walks you through to the information you need for your individual circumstances. You can use this online tool by clicking here.

Brexit Information for Employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - EU Citizens No-Deal Brexit

 

A No-Deal Brexit: What to expect

On the 6th December 2018 the Government responded to concerns regarding the rights of EU citizen’s currently living and working in the UK by publishing the Policy Paper on Citizen’s Rights. The Department for Exiting the European Union confirmed that in the event of a no-deal Brexit EU citizens living and working within the UK will have exactly the same rights and will follow the same procedures as detailed above, except for:

  • EU citizens and their families must already be living in the UK by 29th March 2019
  • In the event of a No-Deal Brexit there will be no 6 month “Grace Period” on applying for residency rights, so EU citizens and their families must apply to the EU Settlement Scheme before 31st December 2020, not the 30th June 2021. You’ll get settled or pre-settled status if you’re successful. The scheme will open fully by 30 March 2019 – find out more by clicking here.

In addition, the Government states in part 4 of their summary:

“To remove any ambiguity about their future, the UK Government wants to reassure EU citizens and their family members living in the UK that they are welcome to stay in the UK in the unlikely event of a ‘no deal’ scenario. The Government is adopting an approach based on the Withdrawal Agreement. We have been clear: EU citizens are our friends, our neighbours, our colleagues, and we want them to stay. EU citizens and their family members resident in the UK by 29 March 2019 will be able to stay and carry on with their lives broadly as now. They will continue to be able to work, study, and access benefits and services in the UK on the same basis after we exit the EU as they do now.”

Travelling pets to and from the EU after Brexit

This is key information for employers and grooms in the equine industry, as many equine workers take pets, particularly dogs, with them.

The core purpose of the Withdrawal Agreement is to avoid disruption to such activities as travelling pets to and from EU countries. As 29th March 2019 approaches without a Withdrawal Agreement in place, plans for a no-deal Brexit have been written. Again, to put it in a nutshell, here are the key details…

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - taking your pets with youUK Grooms taking pets to and from the EU after a no-deal Brexit

UK nationals will still be able to bring pets to and from the UK after the UK leaves the EU. You should contact your vet at least 4 months before you plan on travelling to any EU country with your pets. More information on the documents that would be required to enter or re-enter the UK will be made available for pet owners on the Government website.

EU Grooms taking pets to and from the UK after Brexit

There will be no change to the current requirements for pets entering the UK from the EU after 29 March.

Travelling horses to and from the EU after Brexit

Needless to say, this is very important information for employers and grooms in the equine industry! Not only to many grooms travel their horses overseas to their place of work, but travelling horses between the UK and EU countries will be a key part of many groom’s jobs.

In the event of a successful Withdrawal Agreement with the EU, travelling horses to and from EU countries should remain much the same as it is now. As 29th March 2019 approaches without a Withdrawal Agreement in place, plans for a no-deal Brexit have been written. Here are the key details…

 

Brexit information for employers and Grooms in the Equine Industry - taking your horse with youBringing horses from EU countries into the UK

The import of equines from the EU into the UK will not change immediately after Brexit as the Government are replicating current systems.

 

Travelling horses from the UK into EU countries

Equine ID (passports), issued by industry, would continue to be used in the UK, as they contain information relating to identification and veterinary procedures undertaken that could help to maintain a robust national equine health and traceability regime.

These industry-issued passports would continue to be valid for EU travel for horses registered either on a studbook or pedigree register; or with a national branch of an international organisation for racing or competition.

All other horses and equines travelling from the UK to the EU would have to travel with a new government-issued ID document which is expected to contain very similar information to that in existing passports. This is a requirement of the EU in relation to movements from third countries.
