Small companies that sell online, are in for a shock. New legislation is to make their lives a whole lot more difficult.
Under the proposals a UK firm selling its goods and services to consumers across the EU would no longer be secure in the knowledge that it is broadly governed by English law. Instead it would have to navigate a minefield of up to 27 different, often conflicting legal regimes - or, more likely, opt not to do business outside the UK.Bang goes your chance of running your own online business, selling to consumers across Europe, unless you can afford a coterie of Lawyers.
Its funny, I thought the EU was supposed to make cross border trade easier.
