It’s impossible to fully define what will happen in the UK post-Brexit; it’s been close to impossible to define what will happen in the UK from day-to-day over the past few weeks. But if nothing else, the decision to leave the EU has sent a ripple of uncertainty and some frenzied scenario planning through the international business world.

International companies planning investments in the UK may now be reconsidering, as it will no longer connect to the EU market. British companies with a large EU customer base will be looking at setting up a European office quickly, particularly companies in service industries. EU companies with a large British customer base may need to establish an office in the UK quickly.

For those first two categories, Germany offers a substantial alternative and economic development agency. Germany Trade & Invest can show precisely where to find that alternative and where to add the value from it.

GTAI has now set up a unique Brexit-Special website, detailing answers to the most common questions from companies seeking information on how to get into Germany as an EU alternative to the UK. The website will also detail the events set up by GTAI over the next few months to deal with and react to whatever emerges on March 29 and beyond.

Including an interview with GTAI’s UK Director Rob Scheid and a number of factsheets for quick, broad information, the website can be found here and will be updated daily as the UK’s departure date nears.
