Preparing for Brexit

Date: 10 November 2020, 12:30 - 13:30
Location: Online webinar
Small banner brainstorm ideas
With the end of the transition period rapidly approaching, and negotiations for a new EU/UK "deal" still on edge, what does this mean for your business?

Event Details 

As the clock ticks down on securing a Brexit trade deal, what the level playing field looks like including state aid rules, fishing and governance of any future agreement all remain key sticking points to be resolved.

EU and US backlash against the UK’s proposed Internal Markets Bill and any potential breach of the agreement made before Brexit to keep the Irish land border open also play large on the international stage.
On the domestic front there has also been much talk of ‘levelling up’ and ‘building back better’ – but what does that mean in practice, and who stands to benefit?
Importantly, what do you need to know for your business to be prepared?

The discussion will include reflection on how the apparent impasse could be crossed and what the parties are and are not arguing for. It will also cover what happens if there is no deal, including issues surrounding the NI Protocol and future impacts this may have on subsidies in the UK.
Finally, it will explore the potential impacts on the domestic subsidy control regime in the UK going forwards. This will include the issues of devolution and respective power to award subsidies across different arms of State, but also what WTO rules mean for subsidies and what the impact might be in practice if subsidy control in the UK is reduced to WTO level minimum standards only.

Hosted by DWF in association with Hume Brophy.
