The Government has unveiled a new toolkit to help exporters get to grips with the UK’s new trading status.
The online tools have been made available by the Department for International Trade (DIT) to provide the latest information for exporters.
They give product-specific and country-specific information in one place, making it easier to understand the changes that came into effect on 1 January 2021.
The Check How to Export Goods (CHEG) tool is aimed at UK exporters and pulls together information on the UK border, duties, rules of origin and customs procedures.
Exporters can use the service to check:
- rules and restrictions
- tax and duty rates
- what exporting documents you need
It walks you through a series of questions relevant to the products you export to ensure you have taken the necessary steps to comply with new regulations.
The tool provides information for over 160 markets around the world as well as details of procedures at the UK border.
