Brexit

The Business Impact of Brexit

The UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016, though it did not leave on the Article 50 deadline of March 2019. Leaving the EU will have an impact on every major business in the UK and many further afield. Below are some of the ways we can help your business navigate Brexit as well as our reporting and analysis of the issues that matter.

Yes there is uncertainty and complexity and there will be unpredictable twists and turns in the road ahead – after all, no country has done this before. But we believe that there are concrete actions companies can take now to put themselves in the best position to reduce risks and take advantage of the undoubted opportunities that Brexit will present.

What happens next?

The UK is likely to strike a new association agreement governing its relationship with the EU, but given how long it takes for countries to join the EU this will probably take five years to agree and even longer to implement. This means that we are facing a period after 2019 when UK relations with the EU are governed by an interim agreement or no agreement at all.
