Businesses in Guernsey will have their final chance to give their thoughts on Brexit, in a survey conducted by the States.

The survey which closes at midnight on Monday 24th September, is trying to find out what opportunities and challenges there are for Guernsey firms, once the UK leaves the European Union in March 2019.

The Committee for Economic Development has been working closely with the Policy & Resources Committee and they have commissioned BMG Research Limited to carry out the study.

Companies across the Bailiwick have been contacted, with information gathered on trading and employment practices.

Both an online and telephone survey have been used with the target response rate being exceeded for the telephone research.

However businesses will still be able to complete the online survey, until midnight on Monday.

The States of Guernsey also hope the research will help them prepare the future economic framework between the UK, the EU and the Bailiwick.

On top of this, it would allow the Bailiwick to put preparations in place to join the World Trade Organisation under the UK's membership.
