CETA is the most extensive EU free trade agreement to date.

It will benefit UK companies by getting rid of 98% of the duties they have to pay at Canadian customs. The same will apply to Canadian businesses exporting to the EU.

By boosting trade, CETA will create jobs and growth – and new opportunities for your business.

With a shared history, political system and language, Canada is already a welcoming environment for UK businesses. CETA will ensure this ease of doing business is maintained, and increased in many sectors.

The guidance gives information about the benefits of CETA to UK businesses looking to export to Canada.
