The UK is set to leave the EU in just over 12 weeks, but are you ready?
Starting Thursday 8 October, Shakespeare Martineau will be launching its ‘12 weeks of Brexit’ campaign, including a series of informative webinars, events, blogs and content to get people and the businesses they run ready for Brexit, ahead of when the law changes 1 January 2021.
Kicking off the campaign is a webinar from business immigration expert Tijen Ahmet entitled ‘Recruiting post-Brexit: understanding the UK’s new immigration system.’
As of 31 December 2020, free movement will end, posing extreme challenges for businesses that currently rely on EU migrant labour.
Tijen said: “It’s getting close to the line now and the reality is that any business that employs Europeans from next year will find themselves in a tough position if they haven’t got the necessary sponsor licence and compliance processes in place by now.”
During the webinar, Tijen will talk through an overview of how the new system will shape future recruitment practices and provide practical solutions to support businesses to prepare today.
Other topics due to be covered in the coming quarter include trademark and copyright issues, database rights and the effects Brexit will have on education, as well as commercial contracts and trade agreements in the wake of a deal or no deal.
For people and families, experts at Shakespeare Martineau will be explaining what the new rules mean for making wills and transferring assets from abroad, as well as tax implications on worldwide assets.
The firm will be announcing further topics for webinars and content on its dedicated Brexit & Beyond hub.
