Though the nature of Britain’s leaving the EU is still subject to uncertainty to this date (Sep 30, 2019), we owe you maximum clarity about what the possible scenario of a No-Deal-Brexit would mean for the API that we hold available to you. The following is a list of changes that will break your API integration when we switch our cloud software into “Hard Brexit mode”. You will be made aware of this event to react accordingly. The following is meant to help you get prepared for the changes. (As new scenarios for a Brexit arise, we will do our best to keep you updated.)

Note: The Brexit changes only affect businesses in the UK 🇬🇧 which are VAT-registered. Businesses in other countries supported by this API (Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Spain, U.S.) can safely ignore the upcoming Hard Brexit changes.

Please be aware that all issues about pre- or post Brexit behaviour concern the official date of the invoice/credit note/payment, not the time of creation of this entity.
