What does the EU-UK trade deal mean for trade between the EU and GB?

The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement took provisional effect at the start of 2021. It provides for tariff-free trade in goods between GB and the EU (including Ireland) so long as they meet origin criteria. GOV.UK has guidance to help you check if your goods meet the origin criteria.

Goods that do not meet the rules of origin requirements will have to pay the standard tariffs that the EU and UK apply to imports from other countries.
