On June 23, 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 a valuable opportunity for business 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 your business is a large multinational or a smaller group with just a foothold in the UK market place, you are likely to have concerns and questions.
Join Jane McCormick (KPMG’s Global Head of Tax) and a panel of UK firm specialists to discuss what the result of the referendum means and how it may affect your business. This webinar is primarily focused on explaining the impact of Brexit to companies outside of the UK, and will include:
- What membership of the EU brings to the UK (the current model), and an overview of the effects for the UK of leaving the EU in practical terms;
- Three months on: an examination of how the Brexit model is shaping up;
- An explanation of the direct and indirect tax implications, including the well-publicized area of customs and duties; and- The possible impact on your employees, in particular in the area of immigration.
