As we approach the end of the transition period, it is important that businesses carefully consider whether they are now fully prepared for life outside of the EU.

The transition period will maintain the status quo until 31 December 2020, but are you ready to continue to operate, and indeed to take advantage of new opportunities which might emerge, after that time?

That said, the nature of the changes which are coming remain difficult to predict whilst negotiations continue with the EU at this extremely late stage.  To add to that uncertainty, the way Brexit will impact on businesses will vary enormously, depending on the amount of trade that you do in the EU, and how your supply chains, work force and data flows are structured.

There is therefore very little ‘one size fits all’ guidance which we can give around these areas.  Instead, we have chosen to encourage you to reflect on the impact on your own business.  Beyond that, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with one of our experts to discuss the implications of Brexit on your own business.


We are running a series of webinars looking at the practical impact of Brexit on running your business.
