Preparing and planning for Brexit
As the country continues its complex talks with the European Union, the Government is entering unchartered territory which involves ripping up the rule books, and with them, many European values.
During the initial round of negotiations, the Government has so far pledged its intentions to:
- Leave the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice
- Leave the European Customs Union in 2019, whilst maintaining ‘the freest and most frictionless trade possible in goods’ with the EU
- Not introduce any border infrastructure on the Northern Ireland border
- Not insist that products undergo EU regulatory processes after Brexit if they have already been approved by the relevant UK authority before Brexit
Currently, we do not know how the EU will respond to Britain’s demands, although it is clear that the process of talks will be challenging for all involved.
That’s why Haslers has formed a Brexit team to help keep you and your business protected from the uncertainty that lies ahead.
We cannot say with certainty how Brexit will affect each and every individual business, but we can drop in place safeguards and securities to ensure confidence for the future and keep you informed.
The team can advise on:
- Taxation issues including cross border tax and VAT
- Transfer pricing
- Supply contracts with European and other international companies
- UK and international joint ventures including shareholders agreements
- Corporate restructuring, business expansion and investment
- HR, international payroll, non-dom employees and expatriate tax issues
- Advising overseas businesses and investors investing or starting up in the UK
- Restructuring arrangements to minimise tax liabilities
- Inheritance tax planning including advice for clients with money tied up overseas
