Are there any countries in Europe that we can't trade freely with? Obvously I am aware that we can't trade freely with Russia.

good morning Simon. can you tell us the products you export? In theory, they are no trade barriers when selling in any of the 28 EU countries (Croatia being the latest EU member state to join last July). so no customs requirements, no duties, etc unless your goods are alcohol, tobacco etc.
you can also invoice free of VAT if both you and your buyer are VAT registered.
We have produced a guide on exporting to Europe- the practicalities, which may be useful to you: http://www.enterpriseeuropeeast.org.uk/ckfinder/userfiles/public/Practicalities%20of%20Exporting-updated%202013.doc
In practice you may encounter some difficulties, such as specific requirements mentioned by your distributor or agent or final client and if you are not sure whether these are legal then we can help and check for you. This also very much depends on the products you are selling.
I hope this is useful.

HMRC Advisor, on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs in G67.

Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website www.hmrc.gov.uk under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.

I would also suggest that you contact the Customs Authorities of the country of importation to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.

A more comprehensive guide to importing / exporting can be found on our website by selecting ‘Import and export’ from the home page and then scroll down to ‘Guide to importing and exporting: Breaking down the barriers’.
