If you work for an employer in a country with a reciprocity agreement or a double contribution agreement (sometimes called “bilateral social security agreements”), you usually pay social security contributions in that country instead of social security. The results of the global approach can be interpreted as an estimate of the long-term economic impact of the free trade agreement relative to a baseline, with the long-term approach generally being around fifteen years from the implementation of the agreement. As the full details of the potential free trade agreement between the UK and Australia are not yet known, two key scenarios have been defined to assess the impact of a number of potential outcomes. These illustrative scenarios are used to generate the potential magnitude of the impact, but should not be interpreted as specified options for a future agreement.
