Tell us if you think you’re facing a trade barrier. We might be able to help resolve it.
A trade barrier is something that slows down, limits or prevents a UK business exporting to or investing in an overseas market.
They can affect businesses of all sizes and at all stages of exporting, even if you’re just exploring opportunities.
If there’s a barrier because of coronavirus, please let us know. It helps the UK government’s response to the pandemic.
Report a barrier
Trade barriers are tariff, non-tariff or overseas direct investment restrictions that block or delay investments, exports or potential to do business.
You might be facing a barrier if, for example:
- regulations in an overseas market prevent you exporting or investing there
- you supply services and have to pay unnecessary charges that give an advantage to domestic suppliers
- your goods are delayed from getting to market by lengthy customs procedures
