We now have the opportunity to develop an independent trade policy. 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 sector.
