Brexit

In a referendum held on 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Britain’s exit from the EU (widely referred to as ‘Brexit’) will have profound economic and political implications for countries and businesses around the world. Read more

Brexit is fraught with uncertainties, particularly for multinational companies needing to move talent across borders. No nation state has ever before left the EU, so there is no precedent to follow.

Will the UK negotiate a deal to remain within the single market, which allows the free movement of goods, services, money and people across EU member states? What will happen to UK citizens working in the EU, and to EU citizens working in the UK, if it does not? Will there be changes to the UK’s policy on immigration from the rest of the world? How will international assignments, global relocations, and the mobility industry be affected?

Britain’s EU exit, though it will bring challenges for businesses, will also bring opportunities. This section provides up-to-the-minute news and expert comment on Brexit, plus practical advice and resources on all aspects of global mobility and relocation, to help you support your employees and keep your organisation on track for success. Topics include Brexit’s implications for the mobility industry, business, enterprise and inward investment, commercial and residential property, and education, both UK and international.
