Tariffs on goods imported into the UK

Last updated 5 January 2021

The UK Global Tariff applies to all goods imported into the UK unless an exception applies.

For example, the goods you’re importing:

Importing goods covered by a tariff-rate quota

Some products are covered by a tariff-rate quota (TRQ).

If there’s a TRQ for your product, you can apply to import a limited amount at a zero or reduced rate of customs duty.  If this limit is exceeded, a higher tariff rate applies.

Some tariff-rate quotas are only applicable to products imported from a specified country.

Check the TRQs for specific products, including volume limits and authorised uses.

Tariff relief on some goods for tackling coronavirus (COVID-19)

The tariffs and VAT have been removed on some goods.

Find the tariffs which are subject to relief measures because of COVID-19.
