Trade Preference & Agreements

International trade under preference allows you to import and/or export goods at a lower or nil rate of customs duty. The rate of duty payable depends on the type of goods, whether you’re importing or exporting, where the goods are deemed to have come from – the originating country – and their destination. The preference agreements that apply in the UK are applicable across the EU.

If you’re importing or exporting under preference, it’s essential that you keep up to date with developments in the EU and the originating or destination country.

To be eligible for preferences under any of these agreements, you must:

  • Show that the goods have met prescribed rules of origin
  • Produce valid preference documentation
  • Ensure the goods satisfy rules about transportation
