Creating or maintaining an EU base

Even though a last minute trade deal was struck between the UK and the EU, Brexit raises many resourcing issues.

Organisations may be considering setting up an EU base to mitigate the effect of Brexit, particularly in Ireland, though there are numerous employment, immigration and reward issues employers need to be aware of when establishing a presence in a new country. Additionally, any business travel to the EU, whether for short visits or longer secondments, will now be subject to new immigration requirements, and there are employment, tax and social security implications of relocating employees between the UK and EU member states.
