ARE YOU READY FOR BREXIT?

[THIS PAGE WAS LAST UPDATED ON 2 May 2019]

On 31 October 2019 the United Kingdom is expected to leave the European Union. A hard, cliff-edge Brexit still is a real scenario because the transition arrangement between the UK and EU remains to be approved by the British parliament. As long as this approval is pending, bank sector clients whose finances involve the UK and the EU face uncertainty. Both businesses and retail customers are advised to contact their bank to make sure that they won’t encounter problems that could have been prevented.

Like banks across Europe, many companies have already taken contingency measures to ensure that their business continues to run after 12 April. However, many of Europe’s small and medium-sized companies however are not yet ready. The European Banking Authority has encouraged banks to communicate to customers over Brexit. The European Central Bank also has underlined the need for banks to inform clients.

Key EU institutions such as the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the European Banking Authority have information available for companies and consumers. A number of national banking associations in Europe – members of the European Banking Federation –  also have created dedicated national campaigns to support customers, both business and retail.  Find the links to these websites below, together with links to other relevant sources of information that can help you prepare for Brexit.

To address the specific questions you may have if your finances involve the UK then it’s best to directly approach your bank. Brexit is going to be hard enough, so do so now if you have not done so already. It really is time to prepare for the worst while hoping for the best.
