    Abstract

    Scottish businesses appear to be remaining relatively resilient to the ongoing politicial uncertainty. But they will be awaiting next week’s Brexit vote with trepidation. Through no fault of their own, many Scottish firms are simply unprepared for a disorderly Brexit. Whether you agree or disagree with the decision to leave the EU a smooth transition is vital. The potential disruption to trade patterns, supply chains and basic economic infrastructure mean that a ‘no deal’ outcome must be avoided.
