Britain may have to pay $62bn ‘divorce bill’ to EU – BBC

By Andrei Skvarsky.

The actual process of Brexit, triggered on March 29, may cost Britain up to 50bn pounds ($62bn), BBC has cited “some reports” as saying, though the British government has denied the cost of leaving the European Union will be so high.

Moving EU agencies which have their headquarters in Britain, whose population is 65.4m, and Britain’s contribution to pensions of EU civil servants are some of the items on the “divorce bill”, the BBC said.

Britain’s payments to the EU budget, which outweigh what it receives from the bloc, have been one of the reasons for the Brexit vote.
