Ukie is set to release a range of content advising video games businesses how to prepare for a no-deal Brexit on October 31 2019.

Ukie says that although it strongly believes that no deal should be categorically be ruled out as an option, the trade body successfully applied for funding from the Government’s Brexit Readiness Fund, administered by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, to help games businesses prepare in case it is the outcome of negotiations.

Ukie will be releasing the following content in the coming week or so to support that aim:

  • a video series on the law, highlighting the next steps games companies can take to maintain their data transfers, retain access to international talent, check if their state/EU funding will be affected and whether IP rights will be affected;
  • a podcast with experts answering questions sent from the industry to help deal with specific challenges raised by business; and
  • an e-book signposting to pertinent points of advice and information about preparing for a no-deal Brexit to ensure that businesses are as well prepared for the possible.

Importantly, all materials will be free of charge and will be available to every business in the sector, irrespective of Ukie membership, to ensure it impacts as widely as possible. To read Ukie’s announcement in full, click here.
