Question to the HM Treasury:
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will review the Single Trade Window to ensure its implementation is small business friendly; and if he will make a statement.
The Single Trade Window (STW) will provide a simplified experience for businesses interacting with the Government. Through the STW, SMEs and other businesses will only need to submit their data once and in one place. The better use of technology and real-time data will ensure a more streamlined experience at the border and a reduction in the barriers which businesses, including SMEs, may face when trading globally.
The Government will continue to engage regularly with the border industry to ensure that the design and delivery of the STW take account of the needs of all businesses, including SMEs.
