The details of the first draft Brexit withdrawal text of the deal between the European Union and the United Kingdom emerged this week. The agreement has come about more than two years since the UK voted to leave the EU in June 2016.

The 585-page document sets out the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU and covers four main areas: A transition period beginning on March 29, 2019. This would see the UK follow all the EU’s rules for 21 months, giving both sides more time to reach a deal on trade

The so-called divorce bill which stands at £39 billion. This is how much the UK will pay the EU to cover its outstanding liabilities. The rights of EU citizens living in the UK as well as the rights of British citizens living in the EU. The border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland -- a major sticking point in the negotiations.
