Karen Briggs, KPMG UK’s Head of Brexit will discuss what the result of the referendum means and how it may affect your business and investments.
4 October 2016, 8:00AM - 10:00AM, EST
On 23 June 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union. As has been widely reported, this was an unexpected result and the immediate repercussions have been significant: a change in Prime Minister, Chancellor of the Exchequer and many other key posts in Government, an immediate blow to the UK’s economy, and significant shock waves to the wider global economy.
However, the actual process of disentangling the UK from the EU will take a number of years – officially a minimum of two years from the date that the UK provides official notification (under Article 50 of the Treaty of the EU). This period of time will provide avaluable opportunity for businesses to get to grips with the impact of EU exit on their operating models and work through what changes will be necessary to help mitigate the effects of Brexit. While the Referendum vote was a UK one, we are very aware that the impact is being felt globally, and whether you are a large multinational or a smaller group with just a foothold in the UK market place, you are likely to have concerns and questions.
