Continuity Trade Agreements 

In the event of a no deal Brexit, the UK would trade on World Trade Organisation (WTO) Most Favoured Nation (MFN) terms with the rest of the world (including the EU) unless the UK and counter parties have signed ‘trade continuity agreements’ by 31 October 2019. The purpose of these continuity agreements is to replicate existing trade terms as far as possible.

If you are trading with the following countries, trade will continue on the same terms as is currently the case, post 31 October 2019. This is because trade continuity agreements have been ratified or agreed in principle.
