During the war, British troops had achieved important victories abroad against France: not only had the British conquered French Canada, but they had also won victories in India and conquered French island colonies in the Caribbean. In March 1762, King Louis XV of France officially called for peace talks. Britain has also signed separate agreements with France and Spain and (temporarily) with the Netherlands.

Spain also received the island of Menorca; The islands of the Bahamas, Grenada and Montserrat, conquered by the French and The Spaniards, were repatriated to Great Britain. The contract with France was mainly related to the exchange of conquered territories (the only profits from France were the island of Tobago and Senegal in Africa), but also previous contracts guaranteeing fishing rights off Newfoundland. The Dutch possessions in East India, conquered in 1781, were returned to the Netherlands by Great Britain in exchange for commercial privileges in the Dutch East Indies, through a contract concluded only in 1784.
