Navigating Post-Brexit Business: How WhiteFin Simplifies EU/EFTA Contracting for Agencies

In the wake of Brexit, the business landscape for UK-based recruitment agencies has undergone significant transformation. The departure from the European Union has presented new challenges in contracting and invoicing for services across EU/EFTA member states. Companies throughout the bloc are increasingly seeking local invoicing solutions, reflecting a shift in the regulatory and commercial environment.

Understanding the New Demand

As European clients adapt to the post-Brexit reality, they are expressing a preference for localized contracting and invoicing to mitigate the complexities introduced by the UK’s exit. This trend encompasses the contracting of freelancers and contractor as well as invoicing for permanent placements.

The reasons behind this shift are manifold:

  1. Regulatory Compliance: Working with a local entity ensures adherence to the specific legal and fiscal frameworks of each state.
  2. Currency Fluctuation: Invoicing in local currencies protects EU clients from volatility.
  3. Risk Mitigation: Local invoicing and contracts can decrease the perceived risk, offering stability in these uncertain times.
