Guidance explaining changes for UK exporters to Japan if we leave the EU with no deal.
The UK will not agree arrangements with Japan by exit day.
If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, existing trade agreements would no longer apply. This would mean the UK would not have preferential trade arrangements for exports to Japan.
See the status of discussions with Japan.
