Are you ready for Brexit?

It has now been over 18 months since the UK voted to withdraw from the EU.

Following the end of phase 1 of the negotiations, we are starting to get some idea of what the future will hold for those who will be directly affected by Brexit.

Will you be affected by Brexit?

Whether you are a European citizen living in the UK or a British citizen living in an EU country, unfortunately there is no way around it, you are going to be affected by Brexit.

How you are going to be affected will not only depend on how long you’ve been living in the country and your present occupation, but this will also depend on factors such as where you might have studied or where you might have obtained your driving licence.

How will you be affected by Brexit?

Here is a checklist of a few things to consider doing now, so you can prepare yourself for Brexit:

-as a European citizen living in the UK or a British citizen living in an EU country, you should apply for a residence or permanent residence document now so you can prove you were living in another country before 29 March 2019;

-as a European citizen living in the UK or a British citizen living in an EU country, you should consider applying for naturalisation in the country where you now live;

-as a European citizen living in the UK or a British citizen living in an EU country, if you obtained your degree in another country, you should apply for formal recognition of your degree now and in any case before 29 March 2019;

-as a European citizen living in the UK or a British citizen living in an EU country, if you obtained a driving licence in another country, you should exchange your driving licence for a local one now and in any case before 29 March 2019;

-if you have a company established in the UK and you trade with the EU or you have a company established in an EU country and you trade with the UK, you should set up a sister company in the UK or EU before 29 March 2019;

-if you have a non-profit organisation established in the UK and you engage in activities in the EU or you have a non-profit organisation established in an EU country and you engage in activities in the UK, you should set up a sister non-profit organisation in the UK or EU before 29 March 2019.
