Re: UK passport holders after brexit

Why as the cost has fallen over 20% since the vote, so even with paying a tariff it will be cheaper than before the Brexit vote. Clearly you did not teach maths.
1.43 down to 1.28 today is more like 10%. The tariffs are one cost, the admin from import agents when you're importing many items with different tariff codes can be as much again. But the main problem for me as a business importing form the UK is just the uncertainty of how we might do it as well as what it might cost.

You need to start crying for people selling to the UK as shelf prices can't be raised more than a couple of percent inspire of tariffs & lower value currency.
Or crying for the companies in the UK who need to import goods on a daily basis and whose costs are going up 10%. As you say, they will find it hard to pass those costs on to the consumer but in the end will have to. So start crying for the UK consumer who's cost of living will go up.
