All positives, no negatives. We hold all the cards. Easiest deal in history. Countries are lining up to make a trade deal with us.

Anyone who says otherwise is just spreading Project Fear.

What's the over under on Scotland and North Ireland backing out of the UK and rejoining the EU?

Good thing I'm a Canon guy...

/And I suspect this is, like other companies have complained about, the new UK sales tax rules that mean any European company selling direct to customers in the UK will have to calculate UK VAT, charge that to the customer, and then have a UK HMRC account and pay that tax to the UK government.
//Except this is not because of Brexit, or a UK thing. It is a new EU law, that all companies across the EU will have to do when selling to any other EU country, within the EU. Except the EU have delayed introducing it for six months, so at the moment it is only sales to the UK where they have to do this, leading many to think this is a Brexit thing.
///It is to cut down on tax evasion, something many Farkers have been saying the UK should do.

Easier for NI. The GFA gives them the right to vote to join the Republic, and they'd be in the EU, just as East Germany got into the EU by reunifying with West Germany.
For Scotland, far harder. For one they don't have the right to have a vote. If they did leave applying to join could take a decade, they'd have a hard border with England (something the Irish were terrified of happening) and they would have far higher debt than any other EU member, far higher than the EU joining requirements, and they have no currency or central bank so their economy would be screwed anyway. Their banks would have to move to London, their whiskey companies are owned by a company based in London etc.

So Nikon have stopped/ will stop selling to the entire EU?

Or is this bullcrap?

And ironically, it was incoming EU laws on tax havens that are the reason why some of the most ardent brexiteers (like Rees-Mogg et al) supported leave.

What they wanted was the 'little man' to pay more tax but to leave in place the loopholes for them and their chums to pay none.

Which is what they have got.

'Many Farkers' wanted large companies (Amazon etc) to pay their fair share to reduce the tax burden on ordinary people, which is the opposite of what is happening.

More government regulations should fix this problem

The EU has delayed introduction until July. I assume NIkon, and everyone else, will have got their act together by then.

People are still trying to push this old myth?

The UK made most of those laws first. They were already in UK law, before the EU caught up. The rest the UK put into law anyway, and would have applied with or without Brexit, deal or no deal.

I prefer the Japanese Nikons myself.  No issues with Lucas Optics.

Yeah, that's why they're pulling out of the EU also.

The same sales tax rules don't apply in the EU until July. They were meant to be introduced the same time as the UK, but the EU delayed it their end, hence why some people think this new tax thing is a Brexit/UK only thing.

Come July when Nikon realise they have to do this throughout the EU for all B2C sales they will have got their act together.
