Commodity Codes for wood and wood products are contained within Chapter 44 of the Integrated Tariff of the UK, with codes aligned to:
- how much they’ve been worked
- their nature and purpose, and
- the type of wood they’re made from
From 1 January 2021, the UK will no longer be a part of the Customs Union with the EU. So it is essential that members understand the codes most important to their business. As a first step, we advise our members to check our Brexit page to learn how these changes will affect their business.
Below we’ve included information both to help you understand how Commodity Codes are assigned, their use and purpose, as well as how to find out the Commodity Codes relevant to you as you make declarations during import.
Once you have selected a Commodity Code for your product, this will help alert you to any Duty or VAT to pay on the good during import, relief available, or any restrictions on import or export.
