The Department for International Trade has this month launched two new digital tools to support businesses exporting goods in and out of the UK.
The tools, available on the gov.uk website, explain product and country-specific details regarding tariffs and regulations. Pooling this information into one online location is designed to make it easier for businesses to trade, as well as saving them time in the process.
Trade with the UK
The first tool, Trade with the UK, provides information on tariffs, taxes and rules and is always up to date. It also details any duty relief schemes, if import licenses are needed and details UK commodity codes.

Check How to Export Goods
The second online tool, Check How to Export Goods, provides exporting firms in the UK into international markets with information around duties and customs procedures for more than 160 territories.
It also sets out what exporting documents you’ll need as well as pooling related information from other government departments including HMRC and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs where they relate to the exporting of products overseas.

The new tools will be welcomed by exporting businesses as the UK enters the transition period with the European Union, helping to pool required information surrounding exports in one handy online place.
