The UK Global Tariff consulation

19 Feb 2020

Business

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 tariffconsultation@trade.gov.uk. This email address will no longer be monitored once the consultation closes on 5 March 2020.
