UK tech not Brexit-ready
A majority of small tech business are unprepared for the UK leaving the EU without a Brexit deal. Two-thirds of firms with fewer than 50 staff and around half of mid-sized businesses (up to 250 staff) participating in a techUK survey say they have taken no active steps to prepare for ‘No Deal’.
Many are not ready for No Deal because they have been unable to predict what impact it might have (49%) or have been unsure what steps to take (37%).
When asked about what kind of relationship the UK should seek with the EU after Brexit, six in 10 tech respondents backed closer alignment, while just 30% wanted looser ties.
