From 2021, companies will need to be able to successfully qualify their products for all UK trade agreements around the world, in order to significantly reduce the costs of international trade. The task is a challenge: companies need to know which of the MORE than 20 UK trade agreements are in force, prove the origin of imported goods and provide continuous documentation. Smart applications of global business management can help. They identify each applicable trade agreement, have been automatically qualified, help suppliers request explanations and facilitate documentation management.

This is often achieved by reducing or eliminating so-called tariffs – taxes or taxes on cross-border trade.

If the UK were to act in accordance with WTO rules, tariffs would apply to most of the products that British companies send to the EU. This would make British goods more expensive and more difficult to sell in Europe. The UK could also do so for EU products if it so wishes. On 3 February 2020, Prime Minister Boris Johnson adopted new terms to describe Brexit, formally referred to as “the pitfalls.” “The question is whether we agree with a trade relationship with the EU comparable to Canada`s – or rather Australia`s.
