Commenting on the result of the meaningful vote on the EU Withdrawal Agreement, Andrew Gray, Head of Brexit at PwC, said:
"The result of today’s meaningful vote shows that the certainty businesses are seeking is still out of reach. Until a way through can be found, it is important to remember that 'no deal' is the default outcome. Businesses in the UK and EU need to accelerate their no deal contingency plans. For those who haven’t started implementing no deal actions, there are still steps they can take to minimise disruption. But the longer they leave it, the more difficult this will be.
“We’re advising organisations to urgently activate their no deal plans, while still preparing for both a deal and no deal outcome. The time to act is now.”
