If your company has any kind of connection with the United Kingdom, spend the next 15 minutes on the Brexit Thermometer.

Would you like a swift and serious analysis on how far Brexit will affect your company? The Brexit Thermometer is a self-diagnosis tool that will provide you with a fast technical evaluation of your company’s level of maturity and exposure to Brexit.

The mechanism is simple. If you register with the Brexit Thermometer, you will receive an email so that you and everyone you assign from your company can answer a complete online questionnaire. You may complete it all at once or pause it as often as you wish. At the end of the process, you will receive a tailored report on your specific case, resulting from analysis and interpretation of your economic and financial circumstances, and based on the methodology and know-how of KPMG consultants.

The report offers analysis of five key aspects of business:

  • Business strategy and model
  • Tax and customs
  • Legal and regulatory framework
  • Organisation and people
  • Financial framework

The report also offers a series of recommendations, addressed to your company’s specific sector and allows you to compare your status with that of other companies that have completed the questionnaire.
