Could Brexit affect my ability to contract in the EU?

The EU referendum is coming on 23rd June 2016, where voters will decide whether Britain gets to stay a member of the European Union.

There is plenty of speculation on what the potential effects of leaving the EU will be on industries such as health and science, oil and gas and travel/tourism, but how will this referendum affect the self-employed?

Currently, British contractors and freelancers are able to freely move and work in any EU member state. There are pros and cons of both leaving the EU and staying within the EU, however a British exit from the EU has the potential to impact the freedom of movement of contractors and freelancers in the EU. While this is up for debate, we want to know what you think.

Do you think a British exit from the EU will limit contractors’ ability to work freely in the EU? If so, how?

Do you think there will be no change? Leave a comment below.
