The Department for International Trade (DIT) was created in July 2016 following the result of the EU referendum and was specifically established as part of the government's EU exit strategy. Given the Department's objectives it is not possible to identify which elements of these are specifically related to EU Exit.

The amount spent on consultancy, which relates to the provision of objective advice to the Department relating to strategy, structure, management or operations in pursuit of its purposes and objectives is published in DIT's annual report and accounts and can be accessed using the following link. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/department-for-international-trade-annual-report-and-accounts-2017-to-2018
