“Those are the same demands expected of any third party state, not just the UK.”
Thanks to the wonderful EU if I’m a UK fashion retailer and have my goods made in India I have to pay extra for them to be exported to the EU, but if I have them made in the UK I don’t. Doesn’t sound very fair on India, or the retailer, but those are the rules. Funnily enough, however, this might just make it more economical to have the clothes made in the UK. So, more UK jobs.
You’ll find examples like this anywhere you look. But many of the costs currently being incurred aren’t down to tariffs. They’re down to costs generated by bureaucracy and stupid rules and regulations for which the EU is a past master. We also know that a lot of the additional costs are due to delays caused not by Brexit but covid.

GDPR is a classic example of EU interference, which cost businesses and jobs while doing very little to achieve what it was supposed to do, protect people’s privacy. Thank God we’re out.
