This tool can be used to investigate the potential impact that Brexit (Britain's withdrawal from the European Union) will have on your farming business.

A report will be generated predicting the consequences of two possible Brexit scenarios:

  • Scenario 1: The UK has a free trade agreement with the EU. In England, direct payments are reduced (falling to zero by 2028). It is proposed that these will be ‘recycled’ into public good type payments, however the extent to which farmers will have access to these funds will depend on their level of engagement with public goods schemes.
  • Scenario 2: UK trade with the EU is on WTO terms. In England, direct payments are reduced (falling to zero by 2028). It is proposed that these will be ‘recycled’ into public good type payments, however the extent to which farmers will have access to these funds will depend on their level of engagement with public goods schemes.

Please enter input and output data for your business, either by ha or by enterprise. If you do not have the data to hand, you may use the default sector averages for your business.

Notes:

  • This calculator is currently only applicable to farm businesses based in England: it will be updated to include the other devolved nations once the required information becomes available.
  • This calculator does not cover crops within the horticulture sector. The AHDB Horticulture Board has decided not to use levy funds to provide market information services. As such AHDB would require trade bodies or levy payers to share this data in order to model the impact of Brexit on different horticultural crops.
