Now that the Conservatives have their working majority it would seem that the present withdrawal agreement will be ratified by 31 January 2020. We will then enter an eleven month implementation period that is presently due to expire 31 December 2020.
Landmark’s client alert on this topic has been updated. The document can be sent to clients and prospects to update them on the current position.
A no-deal outcome is still a possibility. Boris Johnson has indicated that he will not seek to extend the implementation period beyond 31 December 2020. Accordingly, there is still a risk that clients will need to take this option into account when planning their business affairs during 2020.
Bob Edwards has written a revised update that we suggest you send to all your clients and prospects. We have kept the text to the point and promoted what we consider to be the minimum action required in response to recent political changes.
The update covers the above issues by:
- Demonstrating that you are responding to recent developments, and
- Providing sensible advice.
If clients don’t respond at least you can evidence that you did provide heads-up commentary.
Making best use of the update
The update is provided in Word format without copyright restrictions. It can be used to inform clients in a number of ways:
- As an email or letter
- An article in your newsletter
- Copy for your website
- A blog article
- Reference for social media promotion
A one step solution
On the assumption that you have plenty to do without fretting about how you can keep clients up-to-date on Brexit issues why not use our content as a one-step solution. Just email your client list or consider the other suggestions listed above? Job done…
If circumstances change we will be writing further updates as the 2020, implementation negotiations progress.
