Supplementary notes

* Without the development of a free trade deal between the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU) following Brexit, the UK would be subject to the EU's Common Customs Tariff under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules. EU tariffs are uneven and depend on the type of product; values are therefore estimates based on trade data and independent calculations.
