What business wants from UK-EU negotiations after Article 50 three suggestions to help set a constructive tone for the talks

At 12:30 today, The Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50, which formally starts the process of Britain leaving the European Union.

Businesses across Britain are 100% committed to making a success of Brexit – and getting off to a good start in the negotiations will be vital in getting the best deal. Therefore companies want some early wins to create momentum towards an agreement.

Here are three suggestions from business to help set a constructive tone for the talks – after all it’s in everyone’s interests to get the best deal

1. We want to see certainty for EU workers here and UK citizens overseas

2. Discussing new trading arrangements should go hand-in-hand with negotiating the UK’s exit from the EU

3. We need both sides to commit to interim arrangements if a deal is not possible inside two years

Above all, UK companies need to know as soon as possible about the UK’s future trading relationships. That’s why the next six months are crucial.

With Article 50 now triggered, the UK enters a period of negotiation with the EU and its remaining 27 member states. But how do these countries differ in what they want to see from these negotiations?

The CBI has warned of the dangers of a ‘no deal’ scenario, which would open a Pandora’s Box of economic consequences for UK businesses, leading to higher costs and delays affecting jobs and pay
