As businesses and households recover from the initial shock of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, their focus is turning to the implications it will have on the UK economy and on their future.
As people return from summer holidays, it seems like a good time for businesses to re-examine their strategies in light of the new realities. We know little at present about the longer-term outlook.
The extent to which the UK’s economy is impacted will depend on the extent to which the UK can negotiate favorable trade deals with EU and non-EU countries.
That will remain unknown for some time. However, the short-term climate has also shifted dramatically so businesses should evaluate immediate plans across-the-board.
