Guidance

Exporting to Turkey after Brexit if there’s no deal

Guidance explaining changes for UK exporters to Turkey if we leave the EU with no deal.

Leaving the EU with a deal remains the UK government’s top priority. This has not changed. However, the government is continuing with no deal preparations to ensure the country is prepared for every eventuality.

Trade agreement

The UK will not agree arrangements with Turkey 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 Turkey.

Tariffs and quotas

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, it would export to Turkey on Most Favoured Nation terms under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules. Turkey also has in place additional duties on a selection of products listed in the document below.

Check Turkey’s import tariffs and quotas under WTO rules on the Market Access MAP website.
