UK Global Tariff consultation

Delivered by Department of International Trade


To inform the development of the new UK Global Tariff, the Government is conducting a four-week public consultation.

The consultation will close on 5 March 2020 at 23:59 GMT.

There is still time to take part in the UK Global Tariff Consultation and have your say by visiting GOV>UK. This is an opportunity to create a tariff tailored to our economy, benefitting consumers and supportive of industry. It will ensure business compete on fair terms with the rest of the world whilst benefiting households through greater choice and lower prices.

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

Once the Government has carefully considered the available evidence, including consultation responses, an announcement on the UK's new Global Tariff schedule will follow in due course.

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