Deloitte survey finds leaving EU biggest risk facing UK businesses

A Deloitte European CFO Survey published today (11th May) has found that Chief Financial Officers in leading UK companies now rank leaving the EU as the most significant risk facing their business.

83% of UK CFOs now rate the level of economic uncertainty facing their business as high and just 1% as low, a net increase of 11% since the previous quarter.
Lucy Thomas, Deputy Director of Britain Stronger in Europe, commented:
“UK businesses are clear that leaving the EU now poses the biggest threat to Britain’s economic security.
“The uncertainty already being felt ahead of the referendum is nothing compared to the economic havoc caused by leaving the EU single market, which would leave Britain worse off by an average of £4300 per household each year.”
“This is yet more evidence that staying in Europe is the best way to secure jobs and financial security for British families.”
