Brexit Pulse Update

    View Author August 2018
    The potential Hard Brexit has been a prevalent topic since our last update in July, and our recent quarterly report centred on the consequences of the UK leaving the EU without a deal. 

    In response to calls to prepare for a no-deal situation, the government has promised a series of papers (technical notes) that explain what a no-deal situation would mean and how to prepare for it.  

    We set out, in our third Brexit Pulse Update, summaries of these technical notes that are relevant to the retail industry.

    With the House of Commons due back from summer recess, the Conservative Party Conference starting on 30 September 2018, and seven weeks until the penultimate EU Summit, we had anticipated a frosty autumn in relation to Brexit, though yesterday’s announcement from Chief EU negotiator Michel Bernard Barnier could bring an Indian Summer.
