Claiming preferential rates of duty on EU imports from January 2022

Claiming preferential rates of duty on EU imports from January 2022

 

Changes to how UK importers can claim preferential rates of duty (duty relief) on EU imports are coming in from January 2022. The current easement allows a UK importer to rely on “importers knowledge” to claim a preference for EU origin goods.  This easement comes to an end on the 31st December 2021.

 

From January 2022, to benefit from preferential tariffs when importing EU origin goods into the UK from the EU, the below is needed.

 

  • A statement of origin will be required on an invoice. This needs to be correctly worded and in line with Annex 7 of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement. [CLICK HERE] to find more detail on this.
  • When exporting from the EU to the UK a statement on origin can be made out by any exporter where the value of the consignment is 6,000 euros or less. Above this amount the EU exporter must have a Registered Exporter (REX) number and include it in the statement.

 

From January 2022, if no valid statement of origin and/or REX number is provided, duty will be due at a non-preferential rate.
