UK Global Tariff Consultation; ends 5th March 2020

The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020 and for the first time in almost fifty years the UK is free to set its tariff rates on imported goods.

To inform the development of the new UK Global Tariff, the Government has launched a four-week public consultation and is seeking business views. The consultation began on 6th February 2020 and closes on 5th March 2020 at 23:59 GMT.

This consultation seeks:

* views on a potential series of amendments to the EU's Common External Tariff to create a bespoke UK tariff regime

* specific feedback on individual products or commodity codes of importance to you (including the corresponding tariff rate)

* information on your interactions with Most Favoured Nation tariffs and the importance of tariffs to sectors that are relevant to you.

The bespoke UK tariff regime will enter into force on 1 January 2021 and replace the EU's Common External Tariff.

To take part in the consultation and have your say on the new UK Global Tariff, visit:
