Tariff Classification

This course is an essential guide designed for anyone involved in classifying goods, whether for import, export or EU trade statistical purposes.

It will give the 3 main tips on understanding tariff classification and finding the correct commodity codes for your goods.

The one-day presentation looks at the background to the tariff, the structure of the Integrated Tariff of the UK and explains the structure of commodity codes (HS Codes). We will be looking at the rules relating to tariff classification using the classification helpline, Binding Tariff (BTI) rulings and international trade procedures related to commodity codes, including the payment of duty, preference and restrictions.

During the day we will go through guidance on specific commodities

But the presenters will not have the time to classify specific products. Our tariff classification course is a practical workshop with top tips and case studies throughout.  Included in this course will be a review of the proposed 2017 changes to the structure of the Harmonised System.
