Like many of you today, we are digesting the news that the electorate has decided to exit the European Union. Whilst the UK as a nation has opted to leave, the UK still remains a highly skilled and attractive place for business and a nation of great strength and competitive advantage over many economies.
I can appreciate that the outcome of the vote will come with a degree of concern to some of you as we are all faced with uncertainty on a number of fronts. Please be assured that we endeavour to keep you up to date and help you to understand the potential impact and manage any immediate business or personal risks as the picture becomes clearer.
During the run up to the referendum it has been absolutely clear that the North East has a thriving market trading with the EU. We will assist businesses in the region to identify the changes resulting from Brexit which will impact them and assist them to plan accordingly to mitigate as much impact as possible. As a North East based business, we are committed to helping our clients and contacts in the region to navigate a period of what we see as undoubted regulatory change.
UK and North East businesses must continue to do what they do best, pull together and find new ways to innovate and drive growth and make the most of opportunities ahead. We’ll be holding events in the near future to discuss the impact and what Brexit really means for the UK, you, your business and your business sector – details of which will be available soon.
In the meantime, should you have any questions or would like to discuss any concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your usual Tait Walker contact.
