The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union is about to become much too real as prime minister Theresa May holds true to her promise of invoking article 50 by March of 2017 and let the British exit from the union. This, of course, has resulted in the Sterling Pound tumbling and hitting 31 year lows against the dollar. Global Call Forwarding has UK local business numbers available for purchase now.
This economic news might sound dire, but the UK is still one of the most stable and reliable economies in the world and once the dust has settled, it will recover, although to what degree is up for question at the moment.

The Messy Divorce
The separation between the UK and the European Union (EU) has been described as a divorce, and like all divorces, it could be amicable or get very messy. For the EU, it is all about saving face and not treating the UK with any preference, even though it is one of the largest economies in the world. Once article 50 is invoked, in theory the UK shouldn’t have any special privileges when it comes to trade, but it is worth mentioning again the UK’s economic standing in the world.
As far as the UK and Theresa May, it is about following the will of the people and the referendum that made all this possible. So when it’s all said and done, there will eventually being new trade agreements between the EU and everyone else around the world, the question is how long it is going to take and what will the damage be to both sides.
The British Economy within the Context of Brexit
The UK is still in the EU and its departure is around the corner, but the economic data is looking good for the country. The number of people working is close to record levels, an unemployment rate is at 4.8 percent, it ranks 13th in the world in per capita at $43,902 and sixth in terms of GDP.
If you want a country in which to establish a business, these economic indicators are great all around, which makes UK local business numbers a great way to bolster any investments you make in the UK.
