Brexit Deal Announced
24th December 2020
The UK and EU have announced a post-Brexit trade deal.
Commenting after the announcement, IFB Director General Elizabeth Bagger said:
“Family businesses are under a huge strain right now, with enormous challenges coming from multiple directions. While they will be relieved with the news that a deal has been agreed, there is still lots of detail to be reviewed and the very last minute nature of it means there is lots of work for many to do in the coming days to implement the plans they have prepared. It is essential that the Government now gets information out to businesses as quickly as possible, in a straightforward and accessible way, to make sure all firms are ready for the post-transition environment.”
