Why Companies Need Due Diligence For Brexit

Why Companies Need Due Diligence For Brexit. The vote to leave the EU and the imminent triggering of Article 50 has many implications for UK businesses.Trying to predict the legislative landscape post- Brexit just isn’t possible at this stage. However, what is clear is that you need to start your due diligence now and put risk management procedures in place to ensure that you are fully prepared for any changes that may result from the UK governments negotiations.

Inevitably our exit from the EU will bring about changes in our underlying law and, although there is no certainty as to what those changes may be, companies need to undertake proactive due diligence on their future commercial dealings now to ensure that they are in a position to seamlessly take advantage of the opportunities ahead.

Companies need to identify and analyse their current long term contracts to ensure, for example, that intended obligations are not affected.

You need to have an awareness of how much of your current business set up is reliant on the EU and how you may need to re-structure your business to accommodate any changes. Advance preparation for the possible cost implications is vital so that they are not a “big hit” in 2019
