Introduction to the Tariff

Introduction

If you trade internationally, importing and exporting both inside and outside the European Union (EU) can seem complicated, but there are plenty of resources available to help make it easier. The Integrated Tariff of the United Kingdom, also known as the Tariff, is particularly useful. The Tariff could be mistaken for an additional duty that you have to pay, but is actually a guide that clarifies what you as an importer or exporter need to know and the rates of duty you should pay.

This guide explains what the Tariff is, commodity codes and the TARIC and classifying goods and how to do it.
