Response to the EU referendum 2016
Our message for our tech business clients following the EU Referendum
The world woke up last week to find that the UK had voted to leave the EU. This was a result that many people were not expecting. Against this backdrop, there is uncertainty and political unrest across the UK and much commentary across the EU and the globe. All of which is not necessarily good for business.
Tax incentives are very much a part of the developed world's tax landscape. These are not EU directives and as such are not impacted by the UK's status in the EU. Indeed, Australia, the US and Canada introduced tax incentives for research and development long before the UK
The process for exiting the EU will take a number of years and nothing is likely to change overnight and we do not believe that the decision to leave the EU will bring an immediate change to the tax incentive policy or the government tax roadmap
