Free Trade agreements and what they mean for your business
A free trade agreement is an agreement between two or more parties intended to reduce (or eliminate) tariffs, quotas and other trade restrictions.
Where there is no such trade agreement, then trade is on the basis of World Trade Organisation (WTO) Most Favoured Nation tariff schedule. Losing the preferential tariff rates in a trade agreement could lead to increased duties on exports from and imports to the UK, incurring costs for exporters; increasing the price of imported products for consumers and potentially leading to a reduction in the choice of products available.
With Canada becoming the latest country to sign a continuity deal with the UK, find out more about Free Trade Agreements and what they mean for your business.
