The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has published a list of 20 'unanswered, critical questions' in relation to a 'no deal' Brexit scenario.

The BCC's questions highlight a range of 'key issues' that are 'unclear' for businesses in regard to a no deal Brexit scenario. The questions cover such topics as trade and borders; people; regulation and contract fulfillment; and digital concerns.

The business group stated that firms are 'hugely concerned' that the UK is 'unprepared for all eventualities'.

'In less than 50 days, UK firms could face the biggest change to their terms of trade in over a generation, without the information and clarity they need to navigate their forward course,' said Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the BCC.

'Even those companies trying their hardest to get ready are still in the dark on important matters, from contracts through to customs.

'The imperative remains to avoid a messy and disorderly exit on 29 March, but businesses need answers they can base decisions on, no matter the outcome.'

The BCC's list of questions can be viewed here.
