PM announces EU Settlement Scheme fee has been dropped
22 January 2019
The Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced in a speech to the House of Commons today that the fee for applications made under the EU Settlement Scheme has been dropped.
The Prime Minister stated:
I can confirm today that when we roll out the scheme in full on 30th March, the government will waive the application fee so that there is no financial barrier for any EU nationals who wish to stay. And anyone who has or will apply during the pilot phase will have their fee reimbursed. More details about how this will work will be made available in due course.

With Brexit scheduled for 31 October 2019, there will be both long and short term legal implications for UK and international businesses.
