The UK wants to start a new chapter in the history of our country, in which we move forward, unleashing the enormous potential of the British people. Leaving the EU will allow us to shape the UK’s economy in our best interests, including those of small businesses, and open up market access around the world with an independent trade policy.

Small and medium-sized enterprises are the backbone of our economy and we are committed to helping them to seize the opportunities that will become available when we strike new deals with our trading partners, including the EU.
