Smaller tech firms just aren't ready for a no-deal Brexit, MPs told


Re: Taking Back Control!

yeah, true.

UK government takes back contol, but - based on what I see in the live stream from british parliarment- doesn't know how or where to drive the country any longer.

Without a deal EU companies are no longer automatically allowed to host data and services in the UK starting April 2019.

Likewise, UK IT staff is no longer automatically allowed to work remotely on EU data.

Hosting data/apps in the UK will be comparable to hosting them in the US or in northern Africa - regulation-wise. The potential legal problems will be enough for most companies to re-locate data and services inside the EU and staff it purely with EU citizens.

I guess there's not much individual businesses can do to prepare for that scanario. They will simply be excluded from what is currently a sizeable portion of their market.
