KPMG urges business not to take its foot off the gas after Florence speech

KPMG comments on Prime Minister's Florence speech

Karen Briggs, Head of Brexit at KPMG comments on Prime Minister's Florence speech

Responding to the Prime Minister’s Florence speech today, Karen Briggs, Head of Brexit at KPMG said:

"Business will welcome the Prime Minister’s proposals around transition, something they have consistently asked for.

However no one can afford to take their foot off the gas. There is a huge amount of preparation to be made at a national and individual business level. Both the public and private sector must make use of this potential window.

All eyes will now turn to whether the EU views the Prime Minister’s proposals as sufficient to move the talks forward in October. Until both sides sign up to the proposals, cliff edge remains a real possibility.
