Brexit overview: your people and Brexit

30 September 2020
Your people and Brexit

The UK government has stated its intention to preserve the rights of EU nationals living in the UK who have arrived before 31 December 2020 under the EU Settlement Scheme. This provides some comfort to EEA staff already living in the UK but the long-term picture is much more uncertain. As it currently stands, the free movement of workers between the EU and the UK will end and a new immigration system will be introduced in early 2021. This system will be skills-based and will apply to both EEA and non-EEA nationals irrespective of nationality. Despite the uncertainty, however, we can help you take some sensible steps now to prepare your workforce for the implications of Brexit.

From 1 December 2020, HMRC will once again benefit from preferred creditor status in the event of an insolvency. This means that, regardless of the date of any pre-existing security, HMRC will rank ahead of the general body of unsecured creditors and floating charge holders in respect of certain taxes (including VAT, PAYE and employee’s NIC but not Corporation Tax).
