The vote in favour of the UK leaving the European Union on June 23 2016 triggering 'Brexit', has created uncertainty and given rise to a lot of unanswered questions.

Due to the procedures and processes involved it is unlikely that an official 'leave date' will be before 2018. During the interim the confusion of how Brexit will affect individuals, families and businesses both within the UK and internationally needs to be addressed. Questions some of our clients have been asking include:

  • Can I still recruit EU nationals?
  • Can my family still join me from overseas?
  • Should I accelerate my divorce?
  • How does this affect my financial planning for the future?
  • Is now the right time to invest in a new business?
  • What is going to happen to the price of real estate?

To address the confusion we have compiled some practical guidance from our experts to answer some of the questions you may be asking about your position now and in the months and years to come, including steps that you can be taking to provide certainty in these uncertain times.

Please share anything you see that you think useful to someone who may be affected. If you would rather speak or meet with one of our experts, please contact one of the team.
