BREXIT relocations are being ramped up
in the wake of Boris's victory
On coming into office, Boris has stated unequivocally that the UK will leave the EU on 31 October, “no ifs, no buts!” The members of his new Cabinet are all signed up to this objective. To change course, would likely mean political suicide for Boris Johnson.
However, he has a turbulent road ahead given his government’s diminishing and wafer-thin majority in Parliament. His answer to that? Boris says Parliament has already passed laws enabling a no-deal Brexit on 31 October if the EU fails to soften its position. There is no sign whatever of that happening as of now.
The pound has suffered a downward slide as a consequence of these announcements which means that UK goods and services have become a bargain for overseas people who are doing business with us. But it also means that businesses are now urgently initiating the Brexit moves of their key talent that have, until know, been kept on hold.
At the same time, there are still a lot of international moves of senior executives, both into and out of the UK. They all bring their own, unique complications (so right up our street!) – and, right now, every client wants everything done yesterday, which makes every day exciting!
If you are planning any senior relocations at this very busy time, do please get in early to avoid any delays or disappointments.
We would like to say what a pleasure it was working with Ann for our recent relocation from California to Chester. Saunders 1865 team input was invaluable and together with the team, made the process much easier. It's not an easy process trying to find somewhere to live, when you're not familiar with the area and 5,000 miles away, but with the help of saunders 1865 and the advice we managed to, and yes the area and apartment are both great. We are very local. The fact we could have rental furniture in our UK apartment, which we didn't even think about, meant we only had to spend one week in an hotel as opposed to the weeks we were anticipating. Saunders 1865 was always available, by phone or email even with the time differences. THANK YOU!!
