Austria's Kurz wants to help EU's Barnier avoid a hard Brexit

Some of the more hardline Brexit advocates in parliament have accused the government of trying to scare people into supporting whatever deal it negotiates.

Marshall said there are also concerns for banking and financial services, where changes could have a significant impact on non-financial firms trading across borders.

In a document detailing contingency plans in the event of Britain leaving the European Union in March with no transition deal, the government said unilateral action on several fronts could minimise disruption only up to a point.

Splits within the British government over the impact of Brexit were laid bare on Friday as Chancellor Philip Hammond warned of a major hit to the public finances if the United Kingdom failed to strike an exit deal with the European Union.

They represent around a third of a total of some 80 technical papers due to be released in tranches by the end of September.

"The government has committed to taking unilateral action, if necessary, to resolve this issue on the United Kingdom side".

Consumers may also have to pay more for online shopping and cross-border payments would also no longer be covered by a "surcharging ban" under European Union rules, the technical notices said.

"Many UK financial services firms who now passport into the EEA are taking steps to ensure that they could continue to operate after exit, for example by establishing a new EU-authorised subsidiary", the government said.

Those actions include its move to establish a new temporary permissions regime that would allow EU-based financial services firms to continue operating in the United Kingdom for a limited period in that eventuality.

Britain's minister in charge of negotiating Brexit, Dominic Raab, said he remained confident the two sides would reach a deal, but said that he was releasing the documents to help people and businesses prepare for any disruption caused in case of a no deal.

"At this stage, firms should continue to plan on the basis that an implementation period will be in place from March 2019 to December 2020, and continue to follow guidance from the regulators", it said.

'Obviously insurers want to meet their commitments to their customers, but this problem has the potential to affect millions of insurance customers, including United Kingdom pensioners overseas.

If the United Kingdom companies will not be allowed the same rights by the EU, British pensioners in Europe could have trouble accessing their pensions.

Although big business may be able to absorb the extra costs, Lewis Goodall, Sky's Political Correspondent, says SMEs will find them "much more onerous".

While the issue has been raised numerous times - by the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and the Treasury Select Committee - today's admission is the first time the government has explicitly addressed the issue.
