Brexit Latest: Time to plan for uncertainty...

Brexit Latest: Time to plan for uncertainty...; Brexit BusinessAs the March 29th deadline looms, Britains withdrawal from the EU appears to get messier by the day. We wanted to try and provide some clarity on the current goings on in Parliament - and what it all means for your business.


The state of play - and what might happen next 

With the initial Brexit deal rejected, and Labours subsequent vote of no confidence failing to force a General Election, Teresa May will return to the House of Commons today with her strategy for Plan B. 

This could simply mean a minor tweak to her initial deal, requiring a second MPs vote, or it could involve a more significant renegotiation with the EU - which would almost certainly require an extension to article 50. 

Other options include a second referendum (though this seems unlikely) and a No DealBrexit. The prospect of No Dealhas been widely condemned, yet it is the current default position - if nothing changes, no deal is exactly what well get 

At this stage then, theres really one thing businesses can be sure of, and thats a period of prolonged uncertainty. In such times, it can be prudent to plan for the worst (or at least, the most disruptive) - which means taking seriously the prospect of a No Dealscenario. 

Fortunately, there are a range of resources available to help you plan your way through all the uncertainty - allowing you to survive and thrive whatever Brexit brings:
