star this property answer text <p>A customs union would eliminate tariff and rules of origin barriers on trade in goods only, as they do not concern trade in services.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Government’s ambition is to preserve the economic benefits of the most important financial services traded between the UK and the EU, and ensure stable institutional processes for governing the relationship in financial services. This is the best way to protect financial stability and open markets, and is in the interests of businesses and consumers on both sides. This ambition is reflected in the Political Declaration agreed by the UK and the EU in November 2018.</p><p> </p><p>We remain committed to preserving our competitive position in financial services after the UK has left the European Union. Our industry continues to innovate and to move with the times – we have world-leading positions in the markets of the future, including green and sustainable finance, FinTech, and renminbi and rupee products.</p> more like this

This included a cut for smaller retailers to business rates by a third for two years from 1 April 2019. The Government also announced a new £675m Future High Streets Fund to support local areas to make high streets fit for the future. £55 million of the Fund has also been allocated to support the regeneration of historic high streets and town centres.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Branch closures can be difficult for the communities affected and the Government pays close attention to this issue. However, the decision to close a branch is a commercial one for a firm, and Government does not intervene in those decisions.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Government is equally clear that as banking providers seek to respond to technological advances and changes in customer behaviour, they must also consider carefully the needs of those who still rely on their local bank branch. Since May 2017, the major high street banks have been signed up to the Access to Banking Standard, which commits them to work with customers and communities to minimise the impact of branch closures and put in place alternative banking services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also supports the Post Office Banking Framework Agreement which enables 99% of the UK’s personal and 95% of the UK’s small business customers to withdraw money, deposit cash and cheques and check balances at any one of the Post Office’s network of 11,500 branches.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>While banks do have to comply with competition law, there is no specific regulation that prevents banks from sharing branches or other premises where their strategies align. The Government therefore has no plans to update competition law on this basis. Government does not intervene in these commercial decisions, but will continue to encourage banks to think creatively about how they can ensure that consumers can access a wide range of banking services on a sustainable basis. For example, NatWest, Lloyds Bank and Barclays are trialling shared business banking hubs in 6 locations across the UK in the coming weeks.</p>
