Contractors need real certainty on Brexit, says IPSE
(2 minutes to read)
Following the recent Parliamentary vote opposing a no-deal Brexit, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE) welcomes this decision.
However, the self-employed body warns that contractors and businesses need a clear exit plan and more certainty from the government.
Andy Chamberlain, IPSE’s Deputy Director of Policy, explained, “Last night’s commitment not to leave the European Union without a deal is welcome news for the self-employed – especially with our research showing 81 per cent of the sector oppose a no-deal Brexit.
“The reality is, however, that the self-employed and all businesses need more than platitudes: they need real certainty and a definite plan. Last night’s vote shows Parliament does not want to leave without a deal, but that’s still a definite risk if it cannot agree a credible plan.”
He added, “Confidence in the economy is now at an all-time low, and government – and Parliament – must act now to lighten this gloomy picture. Freelancers and all businesses urgently need agreement and an end to the uncertainty.”
