Digital tools for traders launched

4 February 2020


Get information about exporting goods in and out of the UK market

The Department for International Trade has launched two digital tools for businesses exporting goods in and out of the UK market.

The tools detail product-specific and country-specific information on tariffs, regulations and other topics.

Tool - Trade with the UK

The Trade with the UK tool provides businesses exporting goods into the UK market with detailed and up-to-date information on topics such as tariffs, taxes and rules.

Tool – Check how to export goods

The Check How to Export Goods tool provides exporters of goods out of the UK market with information such as duties and customs procedures for over 160 markets around the world. The tool also provides information about the UK border which is sourced from other government departments such as HMRC and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

To receive relevant guidance, businesses need to know what the product is made of and where they are exporting it to or from.

The tools support existing businesses who are trading internationally and encourage new businesses to start by making it easier for them to find the information they need. All information included in the tools, such as tariffs, taxes and rules, remain the same as the UK enters the Transition Period.

The digital tools will be updated regularly to reflect any changes.
