Brexit advice for businesses: Deal or no deal?

Tags:

Brexit news continues to dominate the headlines and will continue to do so as we get ever closer to the date of the UK’s departure from the European Union (EU). But what will a deal or no deal Brexit mean for businesses?

At the Berkshire Growth Hub, we want to help Berkshire businesses understand what the EU withdrawal will mean to them and keep business owners updated with the latest information, advice and support available.

The government has been implementing a significant programme of work to ensure the UK will be ready in all scenarios, including a potential ‘no deal’ outcome (where the UK leaves the EU without agreement) in March 2019.
