James Stewart, Head of Brexit at KPMG UK said:

“Many of the businesses we’re speaking to are praying for an extension to Article 50. Nearly all larger firms are now preparing for Brexit, after some came late to the party - however the timing of no-deal implementation planning remains highly variable.

“The chances of some sort of extension or grace period may have increased but prudent firms will keep preparing for no-deal so long as it remains an option. At this stage even our most informed clients feel as if anything could happen. They’re thinking about getting products from A to B, market access, and staffing up situation rooms for April. Forecasting the outcome of Brexit is a bit like trying to predict a greyhound race, there are no safe bets.”
