HMRC workshop series: Export & Import Preference
October 30, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
International trade under preference allows you to import and/or export goods at a lower or nil rate of customs duty. The rate of duty payable depends on the type of goods, whether you’re importing or exporting, where the goods are deemed to have come from – the originating country – and their destination. The preference agreements that apply in the UK are applicable across the EU.
EU member states have multiple Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) or Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) in place with third countries and with blocs of countries acting together under bilateral or regional agreements of their own.
FTAs and EPAs are constantly evolving, with countries graduating from one scheme to another, being de-graduated and/or products being removed or added to the list of preferences and/or being restricted under temporary or permanent limits or tariff quotas. As a result, if you’re importing or exporting under preference, it’s essential that you keep up to date with developments in the EU and the originating or destination country.
