The UK government has published details of which imports into the UK would be subject to new import tariffs if the UK leaves the EU under a ‘no deal’ scenario.
This list includes around 80 fashion products including jeans, T-shirts and men’s jackets, and a dozen other products including some gloves, bed linen and table linen. The average tariff rate for these 100 products will be 12%.
Details of the products and the tariff rates by 8 digit HS code can be found here.
In the event that we leave without a deal almost all fashion and textile products will be able to enter the UK duty free.
If the UK leaves the EU with no deal the UK government you may need to pay different rates of customs duty (tariffs) on imports. These rates would only be applied if the UK were to leave the EU with no deal.
The import tariff schedule is only temporary and would last for 12 months from the date that we leave the EU without a deal.
The tariffs on imports would not apply to goods crossing from Ireland into Northern Ireland.
Countries such as Bangladesh and Nepal which currently get duty free access to the UK under GSP/EBA arrangements would not be subject to any import tariff.
