ADVICE AVAILABLE ON BREXIT COST TO BUSINESS
Following the publication of research findings which indicates that leaving the European Union is projected to cost the Scottish economy up to £11.2 billion per year and Scottish public finances up to £3.7 billion per year, Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, has highlighted a Scottish Government website which can help businesses find out how the result of the EU Referendum could affect their business activities and what support is available.
Ms Cunningham said:
“Analysis published by the Scottish Government, drawing on research by a range of external organisations, suggests that leaving the European Union is projected to cost the Scottish economy up to £11.2 billion per year and Scottish public finances up to £3.7 billion per year by 2030.
“This analysis is further evidence of the clear and pressing need to protect Scotland’s relationship with the EU, but it will also be very worrying indeed for businesses concerned to know how their trade will be affected and what they can do to guard against a possible negative impact. Businesses in that situation may like to consult a web page set up by the Scottish Government to assist them at:
“The page, which is part of the "mygov.scot" website, has a range of useful information about the potential impact of Brexit on business. It also provides the opportunity through a webform for people to ask specific questions in confidence about their own situation.”
