Commodity codes classify goods for import and export so you can:
- fill in declarations and other paperwork
- check if there’s duty or VAT to pay
- find out about duty reliefs
If the UK leaves the EU with no deal, you may need to pay different rates of customs duty. Check the different rates when you know the commodity codes for your goods. VAT and excise charges will stay the same.
Before you start
