Brexit - What does your business need to know

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS:

With less than 100 days to go until the UK is scheduled to leave the EU, there are still many key issues that are unclear for businesses in a ‘no deal’ scenario on October 31 – from what trade agreements will be in place with countries around the globe, to whether and how firms can move skilled staff between the UK and EU, and which regulations they will need to follow.   The British Chambers of Commerce has put together a risk register, showing the progress: BCC Risk Register
