Trading internationally report


As Britain seeks to redefine its position within the global economy, it’s more important than ever to understand the drivers and barriers to international trade.

The UK has a long and strong tradition of global trade and we need to be ready to step up and work together to build on this as the country prepares for a post-Brexit future.

To support this, Kreston has examined the aspirations and experiences of businesses as they trade overseas.

This report, based on a survey of 1,109 business leaders with a combined turnover of £7.6bn, explores the barriers and challenges facing businesses trading internationally and the global markets where growth is predicted. We also consider how that might change in future.

Understanding and considering the experiences of a wide range of businesses can provide important guidance to help the UK economy adapt and grow, helping to deliver the best outcome for the country and its business community.

Kreston is a global network of 200 accountancy firms across 110 countries employing more than 23,000 people. This survey was commissioned by five UK Kreston member firms: Kreston Reeves, BHP, Bishop Fleming, Duncan & Toplis and James Cowper Kreston.
