Tariff Classification Service

Tariff Classification Service

As of 1st September 2015 traders will no longer be able to contact the Tariff Classification Helpline by telephone. Enquries will instead need to be submitted via email, with HMRC aiming to respond within 24 hours.

 

Traders who have historically relied on the convenience and immediacy of the telephone help line, and are looking for an alternative provider, may wish to contact Hexagon to discuss our range of 'Help Desk' services.

EU/Vietnam Trade Agreement

EU/Vietnam Trade Agreement

An 'in principle' agreement has finally been reached between the EU and Vietnam in respect of the proposed Free Trade Agreement (FTA). Final details are yet to be published, however we understand that the terms of the FTA will see a staged reduction in tariffs over a seven year period.

 

Please contact Hexagon if you require further information, or would like to receive updates via our mail out service.

Importing Commercial Samples

Importing Commercial Samples

Companies importing commercial samples should take note that HMRC have tightened up the qualifying criteria for claiming relief from duty/VAT. We would recommend that traders take the time to ensure that all conditions are met before claiming relief against imports of commercial samples. Contact Hexagon for further information.
