Well, tax is set by individual EU states not centrally.
Regulation and standards we already agreed will have to conform to customer's requirements. Many environmental standards are international so will be difficult to walk away from. Likely Employment regulations will be reduced or cancelled but this is hardly a benefit for the people who voted Leave.
State Aid; we will as a minimum have to comply with WTO rules.

Fishing rights were subject to agreements with other interested countries long before the EU was created. There will have to be a negotiation; the elephant in this room is that UK boats will need to fish in non-UK waters to catch most of the fish popular in the UK.
Minimum tax rates are set by the EU. State aid is also very highly regulated (see how they went after Ireland for their dealings with Apple). Regarding regulations and standards, the idea of not aligning isnít to lower them, itís rather to ensure they better match to the requirements of the UK. Why should the EU be seen as the authority on this matter?!
