Brexit: Halloween extension

Webinar | 21 May 2019

Host: Andreas Jentgens

Presenters: Cloe Barnils, Christofer Mellert, and Meera Patel

The UK did not leave the EU on 29 March nor on 12 April, but will possibly exit on 31 October 2019 (or earlier if the Withdrawal Agreement is accepted, or later if another extension is agreed or not at all). The future is still unclear and businesses in the UK and the EU27 are now having to adjust their planning to new Brexit dates. The latest extension has neither removed nor diminished the risks and uncertainty but has at least provided some additional time. This time should be used wisely. Businesses should act now and finalise or bolster their contingency measures to make their operations are as “Brexit-proof” as possible. There are still legal actions possible and some only became practicable again as a result of the extension. A cross-border merger would again be possible to move entities or assets from the UK to the EU27 or the other way around. We'll discuss:

  • The current Brexit situation.
  • The possible legal measures that can be finalised until the new exit date.
  • What are the next steps for businesses to brace for Brexit.

Gain practical insights from our legal specialists on the evolving situation and prepare your business for Brexit, whatever the outcome is.

The impact of Brexit (in English)

Webinar | 28 February 2019

As things currently stand, the UK will leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 at midnight. The definitive outcome remains uncertain.

What is certain is that all companies, from multinationals to small businesses, need to prepare without delay and develop a readiness plan for the different possible scenarios.

  • Which parts, raw materials and services do you currently purchase in the United Kingdom? Where does your supplier purchase its goods? 
  • Do you know whether you will have to deal with import and export formalities (drafting import documents, requesting the necessary certificates, payment of import duties, classification requirements, etc.) ? 
  • Have you thought about whether you will have to register for VAT purposes in the United Kingdom? 
  • Did you look at your Incoterms and are you aware of the consequences if the United Kingdom leaves the free trade zone? 
  • Are you aware that your EORI-number will no longer be valid in the United Kingdom? 
  • What will be the impact on your current client relationships, agreements, suppliers? 
  • Will your employees in the United Kingdom become more expensive? 

With these and many more practical questions, we will have an answer during our webinar. This way, we want to help you with preparing a plan right now. 

The time is right to prepare your company for Brexit.

Financial Services - Preparing To Manage Stamp Duties And Financial Transaction Taxes Post-Brexit

Webinar | 21 November 2018

Host: Ben Mudd
Presenters: Martin Walker, Jonathan Ginnelly, Viviane Carpentier, Mauro Lagnese

While many capital markets transactions involving UK financial institutions are likely to benefit from exemptions from stamp duties and financial transaction taxes (FTTs), can these exemptions be replicated with respect to transactions booked on EU entities? Join us as we explore how to benefit from available exemptions and reliefs, including the pitfalls to avoid. We’ll discuss:

  • How to obtain exemptions from UK and Irish stamp duty and French and Italian FTTs on transactions booked on new EU booking vehicles.
  • Whether establishing an EU booking vehicle and/or a back to back booking model adversely impacts current exemptions for the UK booking vehicle and how these risks can be mitigated.
  • Tax insights from the UK, Ireland, France and Italy.
  • A stamp/transaction tax compliance checklist post-Brexit.

Learn more about managing stamp duty and FTTs in preparing your post-Brexit operating model.
