On 10 October 2017, the UK Government published two papers setting out its proposals for the UK’s trade and customs policy post-Brexit: “Customs Bill: legislating for the UK’s future customs, VAT and excise regimes” and “Preparing for our future UK trade policy“.

The first paper explores the measures that the UK will need to introduce to regulate customs, VAT and excise duties under various Brexit scenarios while the second one discusses the UK’s future trade policy more generally.
