The responsibility for defence exports transferred from the Ministry of Defence under a Machinery of Government change on 1 April 2008 (a transfer of approximately £20 million).

From 2006-07, as a result of enhancing their costing model, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) changed the basis of calculation of the total resource used by UKTI. The FCO resource figures for the period 2003-04 to 2005-06 are not available on a comparable basis to subsequent periods, and can be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
