Business Finances - Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement

The Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement (FTA), signed on 17 December 2021, will benefit Australian households and businesses.

Key benefits of this agreement include:

  • Elimination of tariffs on over 99 per cent of Australian goods exported to the UK to create new export opportunities and jobs for businesses.
  • Australian households and businesses will save around $200 million a year as tariffs on British imports into Australia on almost all UK goods (such as cars, whisky, confectionery, biscuits and cosmetics etc.) are being phased out within 5 years.
  • Mutual recognition of professional qualifications and greater certainty for skilled professionals entering the UK labour market.
  • Australian businesses will have the guaranteed right to bid for a greater variety of UK government contracts in a procurement market.
