Tijdens dit webinar bekijken we de impact van de Brexit vanuit het bedrijfsperspectief: dit is steeds, bij noodzaak, multidisciplinair. Ongeacht de onduidelijkheid op dit moment en de uiteindelijke vorm en modaliteiten van Brexit, zal deze belangrijke gevolgen hebben voor bedrijven en hun internationale handelsrelaties.  Bovendien, doordat het Engelse lagerhuis het ontwerp van Withdrawal Agreement heeft verworpen, wordt de kans op een harde Brexit of een Brexit zonder transitie elke dag groter.

Voor de bedrijfsjurist en voor de adviserende advocaat is van belang om de impact van de terugtrekking van het Verenigd Koninkrijk in te schatten.  Deze concrete impact zal zich laten voelen op verschillende vlakken, zoals:

  • Douane
  • BTW
  • Vennootschapsbelastingen
  • Transport
  • Leveringsvoorwaarden
  • Markering, labelling en onderliggende technisch vereisten voor producten (regulatoire regelgeving)
  • Licensies voor diensten
  • Bestaande en toekomstige contracten (contractherziening, interpretatie, contractbreuk of contractuele risico’s voor het bedrijf of voor leveranciers van het bedrijf, ...)
  • Behandeling van data en data verkeer (o.m. GDPR)
  • Gebruik van EU merken
  • Tewerkstelling & mobiliteit van werknemers van het bedrijf
  • Activiteiten van zelfstandigen die diensten verlenen aan het bedrijf

De impact is steeds bedrijfspecifiek, afhankelijk van de contactpunten met het Verenigd Koninkrijk, maar vereist dat elke activiteit en elk departement een Brexit screening doet. Tijdens dit webinar wordt u een overzicht gegeven van de verschillende Brexit-gevolgen die een bedrijf in overweging dient te nemen.
