BREXIT - a second batch of technical notices in the event of a 'no-deal' BREXIT
17 Sep 2018
The UK Government has just published its second batch of technical notices to help business prepare in the event of a no-deal scenario in the BREXIT process. The UK government firmly believe it is in the interests of both the EU and the UK to strike a deal. And that remains the goal on both sides. They are confident that this will be achieved.
But it’s the job of a responsible Government to prepare for all scenarios, including the unlikely event that we reach March 2019 without agreeing a deal.
They have already carried out very significant preparations, but are now stepping up the pace, including publishing a series of technical notices so that businesses and citizens have time to prepare. This does not reflect an increased likelihood of ‘no deal;’ an acceleration at this point was long-planned to ensure plans are in place by March 2019 in the unlikely scenario they are needed.
