The United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union and is heading for Brexit. This may not be what many expected and there has been much speculation about the long term implications of this decision for UK and international businesses.
One thing we know, at least, is sure: Brexit won’t happen immediately. There won’t be any drastic changes until the process is complete, and despite the immediate effects on the financial and currency markets, EU laws will continue to apply to the UK and Britain will continue to participate in other European Union business as normal until then.
