Ireland Encourages Businesses to Move to Dublin as Brexit Looms

“Managed skilfully, relocation plans can be set up and changed (or aborted entirely)

at will where necessary, with abortive costs being kept to a minimum.”

As worries about a no-deal Brexit intensify and the March deadline draws ever closer, Ireland is keen to make it as easy as possible administratively for those businesses that find Dublin an attractive location from which to service their UK customers.

 

In particular, Dublin wants to become a hub for financial services companies but the fair city is also being eyed up by pharma companies, medical device companies, law firms and others according to the UK’s Financial Times newspaper.

Clients of Saunders 1865 in the financial services world have also been showing a lot of interest in Frankfurt, Luxembourg and Paris.  The problem for businesses is the uncertainty around whether a sensible EU/UK Brexit deal will be agreed and approved by the UK Parliament.  British prime minister Theresa May has agreed a draft withdrawal treaty with the other EU27 member states, but faces big obstacles in winning the approval of Parliament.

Unfortunately, it’s probable that the uncertainty will continue for some time to come making it difficult for businesses to make decisions.  But smart employers are advancing their relocation plans nevertheless to beat the rush on available resources (like school places and rental homes) in the leading EU locations. 

Managed skilfully, relocation plans can be set up and changed (or aborted entirely) at will where necessary, with abortive costs being kept to a minimum.
