Brexit and legal consequences on your business: Our team is here to help you!
The exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union on January 1, 2021, has legal consequences. From now on, our neighbours overseas are no longer subject to the directives and regulations applicable in the EU.
You may think you are not impacted because you do not have an establishment in the UK or because you do not export to the UK.
However, your activity can be directly or indirectly linked to the UK territory: your computer servers are located there, your subcontractors host your data in a cloud located there, you have a community trademark, which has protected you until now also in the United Kingdom …
In this way, any link between your business and the UK territory, even the most tenuous, may be impacted.
