Based on a dataset between 1 January 2017 and 30 November 2019, it can be concluded that UK companies make use of cross-border mergers and cross-border seat transfers of Societates Europaeae (SEs) in order to move from the UK to other EU Member States. Such cross-border transactions primarily concern companies from the financial sector, but also companies from other sectors are relocated.
