Brexit: Avoiding the risks and planning for the future

There is an increasing likelihood of a no deal Brexit on 31 October 2019.  It is important that businesses and individuals prepare for the impacts of Brexit – deal or no deal.  

AMCHAM and the British Chamber of Commerce teamed up with immigration professionals from Brussels and London and global immigration firm Fragomen to offer a public service seminar on 7 October at 18.30 at St George’s School in Hamm, Luxembourg in the presence of H.E. Ambassador John Marshall. The aim of the seminar was to show how, with careful planning, you can manage the risks and issues in the least disruptive way in the run up to and post Brexit.

The seminar helped us to understand the contingencies we can make now in relation to UK nationals traveling to the UK and EU nationals traveling to the UK.  It will also give you practical advice on how to communicate to and reassure any impacted employees.  In addition, they looked at the impact Brexit could have from a social security cost and services perspective.

Paul Schonenberg CEO & Chairman of Amcham opened the evening with a welcome to everyone and Brexit updates were then given by Jo Antoons, Wim Cocquyt and Ian Robinson of Fragomen.

British Ambassador Mr John Marshall gave us some interesting updates and then after a brief Q&A by Christine Sullivan we all retired to a great networking cocktail kindly sponsored by Fragomen.
