Exit day is 31st October (this date is in a Statutory Instrument)
Today (8th October) the UK republished it’s temporary Import Tariff Regime that will apply in a no-deal Brexit.
[this Blog does not focus on Customs or VAT]
It is mostly unchanged from the March version. Three aspects have changes – affecting HGVs, bioethanol and clothing –
• lower tariffs on HGVs entering the UK market, striking a better balance between the needs of British producers and the SMEs that make up the UK haulage industry, ensuring that crucial fleet replacement programmes that help to lower carbon emissions can continue
• adjusted tariffs on bioethanol to retain support for UK producers, as the supply of this fuel is important to critical national infrastructure
• tariffs applied to additional clothing products to ensure the preferential access to the UK market currently available to developing countries (compared to other countries) is maintained.
