Post-Brexit UK Tariff Regime Published

As of 1 January 2021, the UK Global Tariff (UKGT) will apply at the UK border to goods imported from countries with which the UK does not have a preferential trade agreement. This includes goods from major economies such as China and the US.

It will also apply to imports from certain countries with which the EU currently has preferential trade agreements, including Canada, Japan and Mexico, but which have not rolled over those agreements to the UK’s benefit. If the UK is unable to agree a trade deal with the EU before the end of 2020, the tariffs will also apply to imports from the EU.
