James Stewart Head of Brexit at KPMG UK responds to today’s Brexit White Paper
Responding to today’s Brexit White Paper, James Stewart Head of Brexit at KPMG UK said:
“Most businesses will welcome today’s White Paper. Although the document may not offer additional certainty on the final deal, it does provide some much sought after clarity on the UK’s negotiating position. Business leaders will be keen to get their teeth into the detail and analyse some of the questions they’re wrestling with such as the separation of goods and services. This is particularly difficult because of the way in which we now buy things - with physical goods often coming with service plans and software updates for example.
“Business attention will now switch from UK politics to Europe as investors seek to understand the reaction of the negotiators and member states to the UK’s proposals.”
