With the United Kingdom leaving (or potentially leaving) the European Union (EU) on 29th March 2019 there are many questions regarding many aspects of life and business.

One such question refers to what happens to UK businesses and individuals who have registered a .eu domain.

Let us start with what the requirements are for registering a .eu domain:

  • Undertakings having their registered office, central administration, or principle place of business within the European Community;
  • Organisations established in the European Community without prejudice to the application of national law;
  • Natural persons who are residents within the European Community;
