Post UK Exit Opportunities – Our Specialty

Time Left To End Withdrawal Agreement

Now is the time left to take operational measures and make strategic considerations before January 1, 2021, when the UK moves on without a foreign trade agreement with Europe.

The route the UK subsequently developed is clearly visible. This requires a strategic approach to map out the new competitive field and to discover new possibilities as much as possible.

Nicodem & Company has performed major research since April 2018 into the dynamics of the UK exiting out of the EU and to seek the opportunities forthcoming.

An extensive program has been developed to let you anticipate this impactful movement.

Make strategic use of the forthcoming opportunities!

Transition phase & New relationship

The diagram below shows how tight the transition period is. Much more important is what the new situation after the transition phase will bring you. We can fill in the question mark for you and assist you in following the right course.

Changing playing field

Since the outcome of the October 2019 elections in the UK, there has been rapid processing and passage of decisions and necessary legislation. This in combination with the course taken by the UK gives a predictive value about the negotiations and the outcome desired for the UK.

This outcome is not necessarily in line with the desired outcome of the EU. The “Level Playing Field” pursued by the EU is less attractive for the UK. A new playing field is created and with that a new competitive field from this change.
