In Economy, Grow internationally

From 1 January 2021, the UK will apply a UK-specific tariff to imported goods.  Below are links to the communication, policy and tariff examples and a tool to check what the tariff will be. As UK / EU are still negotiating trade agreements, some tariffs may change by the end of the year.

This UK Global Tariff (UKGT) will replace the EU’s Common External Tariff, which applies until 31 December 2020.

The government ran a consultation to inform development of the UKGT. Read the summary of public responses and government response for full details.

What the tariff applies to:

The UKGT will apply to all goods imported into the UK unless:
· an exception applies, such as a relief or tariff suspension
· the goods come from countries that are part of the Generalised Scheme of Preferences
· the country you’re importing from has a trade agreement with the UK

It only shows the tariffs that will be applied to goods at the border when they’re imported into the UK.
It does not cover:
· other import duties, such as VAT
· the precise details of trade remedies measures
· other restrictions on imports, such as anti-dumping, countervailing or safeguards
