As the largest trading partner of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the German economy is very much in the spotlight. Those business entities that are affected have a long list of questions about the challenges that are heading in their direction, and what arrangements and consequences will flow from the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

In Brexit Decoded, KPMG experts explain the effects of Brexit and look in detail at the different kinds of consequences for those sectors that are most affected. These include the automobile industry, air transport, the health and finance sectors as well as the food and drink industry.

Many different aspects included in the checklist relate to the time immediately after Brexit.

Undoubtedly, the most important question that companies who have business relationships in or with the United Kingdom need to be asking is whether they will be able to continue to meet their commitments to their customers.
