Britain votes to LEAVE the EU – our thoughts

Posted on Jun 24th, 2016 | News and opinion

While undoubtedly most of us will be relieved to see the back of the EU referendum, the historic decision to support Brexit is likely be of huge consequences for freelancers, contractors, and small businesses in the UK.

Jason Kitcat, Head of Policy & Public Affairs at Crunch, said:

“We hope that the Government will move quickly following this result to set out its exit plans to minimise uncertainty for the business community.

“At the heart of negotiations to leave the EU must be how the growth and productivity of freelancers, contractors, the self employed, and entrepreneurs will be supported in the new settlement.”
