The UK left the European Union on 31 January.
To assist the development of an independent trade policy, UK Global Tariff policy, the Government has launched a four-week consultation period and is seeking the views of businesses across the country. The consultation will close on 5 March 2020 and an announcement on the UK’s new Global Tariff schedule will follow shortly afterwards.
The consultation offers you the opportunity to provide:
- Views on a potential series of amendments to the Common External Tariff to create a bespoke UK tariff- specifically: simplifying and tailoring the UK Global Tariff policy, removing tariffs on goods imported by UK businesses to manufacture other goods, and where the UK has zero or limited domestic production
- Specific feedback on specific products or commodity codes of importance to you, including on the corresponding tariff rate
- Information on your interactions with MFN tariffs and the importance of tariffs to your sectors
For any further queries you can email email@example.com. This email address will no longer be monitored once the consultation closes on 5 March 2020.
