28-03-2019 | If the UK parliament does not approve the agreement, Brexit will be postponed until April 12, 2019. The UK then has until April 12 to make one of the following choices: to approve the agreement, to decide without leaving agreement (no deal), to request a (longer) delay, to abandon a Brexit.
80 fashion products
The UK government has published details of which imports into the UK would be subject to new import tariffs if the UK leaves the EU under a ‘no deal’ scenario.
This list includes around 80 fashion products including jeans, T-shirts and men’s jackets, and a dozen other products including some gloves, bed linen and table linen. The average tariff rate for these 100 products will be 12%.
Details of the products and the tariff rates by 8 digit HS code can be found below in the annex: UK Import Tariffs in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit
In the event that UK leaves without a deal almost all fashion and textile products will be able to enter the UK duty free.
If the UK leaves the EU with no deal you may need to pay different rates of customs duty (tariffs) on imports. These rates would only be applied if the UK were to leave the EU with no deal.
The import tariff schedule is only temporary and would last for 12 months from the date that UK leaves the EU without a deal.
The tariffs on imports would not apply to goods crossing from Ireland into Northern Ireland.
Currently, if the UK leaves the EU with no deal, the UK government would not introduce any new checks or controls on goods at the land border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Countries such as Bangladesh and Nepal which currently get duty free access to the UK under GSP/EBA arrangements would not be subject to any import tariff.
Tariffs on Exports to the EU
In the event of a no deal all UK exports to the EU would be subject to a tariff. The average EU tariffs for our sector are 4% for yarn, 8% for fabric and 12% for clothing. Footwear and accessories such as handbags would have different tariffs.
Details of the tariffs that would apply to exports to the EU in the event of a no deal can be found in the annex: EU Tariff rates in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit
It is not yet clear whether the UK will leave the European Union with or without a deal. We do not currently know what a deal looks like but we do know what ‘no deal’ looks like.
