Temporary rates of customs duty on imports after No-Deal Brexit

Government introduces temporary rates of customs duty on imports after No-Deal Brexit

Today (13/03), the Governement has announced that in the event of a no-deal Brexit a temporary tariff will be imposed on imports.

It has been stated by the Department for International Trade (DIT) that UK businesses will not pay tariffs on 87% of goods imports by value – helping to avoid price increases & supporting households.

There will be a mix of tariffs & quotas on products including:

  • Finished vehicles
  • Beef, lamb,
  • pork & poultry
  • Butter & some cheeses
  • Bananas,
  • raw cane sugar, and certain kinds of fish

The new tariffs will come into force as soon as we leave the EU – only if we leave with no deal. They will apply for up to 12 months while they consult consumers & businesses on future tariffs.
