Euroguidance UK and Brexit

We are proud of the reputation which we have developed over the last quarter of a century for reliable advice on international mobility issues and careers. Indeed, in light of the EU referendum result, we believe our expertise is now needed more than ever. The UK may have decided to leave the EU but there is still little clarity on exactly what Brexit means. As a result, we are drawing on our knowledge and expertise to produce a suite of resources which help the careers, guidance and education sectors understand the latest Brexit developments.

Brexit Factsheets

Our Brexit factsheets look to help keep young people and careers practitioners up to date with the impact of leaving the EU. We are constantly updating and adding to the factsheets available. Equally, these factsheets are complemented by a suite of presentations and workshops which we deliver at events across the country.

Brexit Briefings

We are also producing regular Brexit Briefings, which will look to boil down the latest developments and news into one clear, impartial update. Whilst we hope that these briefings will be of interest to a broad range of people, the focus will be on those developments which directly impact on careers guidance in the UK. To receive the latest briefings to your inbox, and for more information on how we can help (including school events, presentations and general enquiries) email

 The EU view of Brexit.


While nothing is certain at present, says Anne-Marie Welch of tax specialists RSM, there are a number of tax issues to consider for UK employers who are either sending employees on international assignments or hosting incoming secondees. The Expatnetwork has a unique perspective on the issues.

Older generations also have itchy feet, with companies that offer advice to those seeking to retire abroad reporting a 25 per cent increase in business.
