The scoping assessment for a UK-Australia agreement, published back in June 2020, assessed the potential impact on Australian exports to the UK under an illustrative scenario of a tariff-free trade agreement between the UK and Australia. It does not include an assessment of the effects of changes to the UK’s trading relationship with Australia’s main export markets.

Following the conclusion of negotiations, a full impact assessment will be published prior to implementation.
