James Stewart, Head of Brexit at KPMG UK comments as Brussels seeks emergency powers.
Commenting as Brussels seeks emergency powers to prepare for hard Brexit, James Stewart, Head of Brexit at KPMG UK said:
“The actions taken by Brussels to prepare for a sudden breakdown in Brexit negotiations show how finely balanced the talks are set to become. The scale and complexity of what’s at stake, coupled with the sheer challenge of issues like the Irish border, mean that when it comes to preparedness it would be premature for business to take its foot off the pedal. We are encouraging our clients to have a contingency plan for a bumpy Brexit.”
