The Department for International Trade has launched a digital tool to give businesses the information they need to export goods out of the UK market. The free tool, called ‘Check How to Export Goods’, has launched on GOV.UK.
The tool helps any business, particularly SMEs, to trade with over 160 markets by providing up to date information and guidance on what they need to know and do in order to export goods to an EU country or to the rest of the world.
Businesses input their product commodity code and export destination and can then access product-level and country specific information including duties, regulations, customs procedures and trade agreements between the UK and other markets.
The tool saves time by providing the information that is needed to trade goods in one place.
‘Check How to Export Goods’ includes key information on:
- Commodity codes
- Duties, taxes, charges and quotas
- Rules of origin
- How to move your goods out of the UK
- How to move your goods into other countries/destinations
