Given the historical links between the UK and the rest of the world, especially the Commonwealth, many firms in the region have started to invest in Europe using a UK company as headquarters, despite Brexit paving the way for uncertainty. We, as a firm, believe that the EU will eventually offer the UK tariff-free trade agreements, access to the Single Market and confirm customs arrangements. The reason is simple: The EU has run a trade surplus with the UK over the last few years- so the risks of a no-deal Brexit are far greater for the remaining 27 countries than the UK.

2 Ease of doing business- all regulatory commitment can be done electronically and no bureaucracy
