On June 23, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, supported Brexit.
Following the vote numerous reports indicated the country's possible financial losses in case of exit from the European Union.
In October, The Times reported, citing leaked government papers, that the United Kingdom’s Treasury could lose up to $82 billion in tax revenues annually in case of the hard Brexit that would leave the country without access to the EU single market.
