Consultations – UK Global Tariff and Freeports

UK Global Tariff Consultation

The UK Government has launched a consultation on the UK’s independent tariff policy to apply from 1 January 2021. This is the first time in almost fifty years that the UK will be free to set its tariff rates on all imported goods. This consultation represents a unique and historic opportunity for every business, every person and every civil society group, in every part of the UK, to have their say.

The UK Government encourages everyone with an interest to take part and provide their views.

The consultation will close on 5 March 2020.

For further information please visit the GOV.UK website.

Freeports Consultation

The UK Government  wants to establish Freeports, which have different customs rules than the rest of the country, that are innovative hubs, boost global trade, attract inward investment and increase productivity.

It is proposed that up to 10 Freeports will be introduced across the UK. The UK government’s aim is for Freeports to attract new businesses, jobs, investment and opportunity.

The consultation closes on 20 April 2020.
