“Exit day” is here and the UK remains a member of the European Union. If Mrs May’s deal is approved by 11pm tonight, exit day will be delayed to 22 May. If not, exit day will occur on 12 April.
With “No deal” risk assessments having been calibrated to 29 March, most companies will by now either have implemented their contingency plans, or be standing ready to implement any final steps. For listed companies, these will include monitoring whether the Brexit outcome requires a communication with investors and how it affects their continuing obligations.
Our latest Brexit Essentials highlights the key considerations in these areas for UK listed companies as we enter the final countdown.
