You can request a call back from us or get a quote online.

The United Kingdom’s historic exit from the European Union has undoubtedly altered the business environment for many limited enterprises. While the initial phase of the demanding transition has passed, many firms are still carefully negotiating the complexities of this new environment. The article digs into how Brexit has impacted UK limited firms, thoroughly studying regulatory changes, taxation regimes, and international trade dynamics.

Unveiling the Regulatory Revamp:

  • Corporate Restructuring: The Societas Europaea (SE), a legal structure previously open to UK firms, is no longer accepting new registrations. Existing SEs must undergo a conversion process to keep their legal standing and change into UK Societas.
  • Disclosure Realignments: Limited companies with directors or establishments in the EU may face additional filing responsibilities and a more stringent disclosure procedure when dealing with corporations such as House.
  • Data Protection: A Balancing Act: The UK enacted its data protection regime (UK GDPR), which primarily reflects the EU GDPR, but there are some minor differences. Companies doing cross-border activities must be aware of these intricacies to maintain compliance.

Navigating the Taxing Terrain:

  • VAT: A Double-Edged Sword: The UK has regained the ability to set its VAT rates and rules, which might provide advantages for some firms. However, heightened customs restrictions for commerce with the EU may result in more outstanding import VAT and tax charges.
  • Corporation Tax: A Matter of Scrutiny: Although the headline corporation tax rate stays the same, the total impact of Brexit on a company’s tax responsibilities can be complex, relying extensively on your company’s unique circumstances.

International Trade: A Shifting Landscape:

  • Trade Deal Decoded: The United Kingdom has begun discussions to build new trade deals with nations outside the European Union. While these agreements may create exciting new prospects, they also need changes to current commercial connections with the EU, such as customs declarations, product certifications, and the possibility of tariffs.
  • Supply Chain Snags: Companies that rely primarily on suppliers or customers in the EU may have experienced interruptions due to new customs procedures and stricter border checks.
