    Very Complex

    "A series of Treasury slides warned that high street goods in Northern Ireland were "likely to increase in price", that checks on goods across the Irish Sea were "likely to affect business profitability" and that retailers were "likely to be hit".

    A DexEU report suggested that "delivery of the required infrastructure, associated systems, and staffing to implement the requirements of the [Irish] protocol by December 2020 represents a major strategic, political and operational challenge"." per this attached article in RTE by Tony Connelly on 29 Feb 2020
