Tariff Changes

Article Date: 22 August 2011

All goods exported or imported are classified with a commodity code. These are 8 digits for exports and 10 or more for imports.

Regular checks should be made to ensure the correct code is being used as these codes can change with no notification (unless a BTI is in place) for example electric hairdryers changed from 85163110 to 85163100 this year.

Large scale changes are planned for 2012 as the codes are reviewed and updated in 5 yearly cycles.  To check you are using the correct codes send Chamber a quick email detailing the codes you are using with the description of your product or give us a ring. 01254 356440
