Understanding possible Brexit outcomes

  • In the first section, four potential Brexit scenarios are outlined, gathered from the Bank of England’s and others’ publications.
  • Two scenarios are outlined where the UK leaves the EU with a deal: a “close” and a “less close” scenario. Both do not result in major economic impacts over the near term, as the changes are proportionately applied.
  • We consider the “less close” scenario a more realistic representation of the UK government’s proposed future relationship.
  • Two no-deal scenarios are also proposed: a “disruptive” and a “disorderly” scenario. Both result in significant negative economic impacts resulting from the initial disruption to trade, and include secondary impacts which feed through into lower economic activity.
  • Both scenarios show the UK in recession over the three quarters starting in Q4 2019.

Assessing the impact for construction and manufacturing companies

  • The impacts on the Construction and Manufacturing industries are then presented. Both short- and long-run impacts of both a deal and a no-deal Brexit are outlined.
  • A discussion of the likely impacts of major construction materials and products is provided, with a high-level assessment of the probability and impact for use as a starting point in risk assessment.

Mitigating the Brexit risk

  • Finally, a procedure to assess and mitigate the possible impacts for a construction or manufacturing company is presented, including risk analysis and risk mitigation.
  • Several suggestions are provided for companies to consider across the range of a company’s activities to mitigate any disruption.
