The Telegraph are reporting that Sony are to merge their UK HQ in to their Dutch arm to avoid any possible fallout from Brexit. Although no staff or operations will be moved it will mean the company’s HQ is now in Amsterdam so all financial reporting will occur there.
It appears Sony is fearing a hard Brexit which could make the UK difficult to trade with, especially when it comes to financial matters. There’s also a possibility that post Brexit the UK could become a tax haven, offering business very low rates, but that also has problems and the Japanese don’t like having their business in such locations. That’s the reason why Panasonic are also moving their HQ out of the UK to the Netherlands.
We should point out that PlayStation is a separate company and so far they seem to be keeping their UK headquarters, but if Sony are moving one chunk of their business there’s a good chance they will shift everything. However, in 2015 the WTO added video games consoles and software to it’s zero tariff list, so as far as I can tell, even if we do crash out the price of games should not rise, at least not from tariffs.
Of course after March 29th you’ll probably be starving from the lack of food and too busy deciding which of your pets looks the tastiest to bother playing videos games.
