Brexit report: Bates Wells collaborates with Creative Industries Federation

With fears of a “No-Deal Brexit” growing due to increasingly turbulent UK/EU negotiations, Bates Wells has collaborated with the Creative Industries Federation to release a report which details what creative organisations (and Federation members in particular) need to do in order to prepare for this outcome.

Designed to meet the needs of enterprises, organisations and freelancers in this sector, the report examines what a “No-Deal Brexit” would entail for the creative industries given that, in the words of the report’s authors, this eventuality is “now becoming an actual possibility, rather than simply a worst-case scenario intended to scare all sides into behaving”.  

Citing recent survey results gathered by the Federation which state that 40% of creative businesses believe that a “No-Deal Brexit” will harm their ability to export, the report sets out a series of straightforward, easy-to-understand steps which organisations can take in order to be ready for this event.

Although the chances of a “No-Deal Brexit” may appears to be small this guide underlines that there is a need for all organisations to reflect on the current political discourse, and to recognise that a range of outcomes are possible at this stage of the negotiations.
