What needs to be planned? We know what WTO tariffs are, EU is about politics & protectionism not free trade.
"We know what WTO tariffs are," Do we? Do you have a source for what WTO tariffs are agreed for UK trade?

Why the “WTO option” for Brexit will prove tricky!
Setting new, independent tariffs and quotas will be a tortuous process

WTO Director-General Roberto Azevedo said that instead of the promised clean break, pulling out of the EU would plunge not just Britain but also Brussels into lengthy talks with the rest of the WTO as the two newly divorced economies would both need to rejig their relationships with the rest of the world.

"It is very likely that both the EU and the UK will have to negotiate with all WTO members," Azevedo said.
