Brexit - advice for your business

Following the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the UK will no longer be an EU Member State from 29th March 2019. If a withdrawal agreement is agreed, a transition period will run from 29th March 2019 to 31st December 2020. However, if no deal can be reached there is a possibility of the UK leaving the EU without a deal. Businesses are therefore encouraged to prepare for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.
