Hi,

You have a couple of options:
1) Lookup the tariff code yourself on the Gov website here - https://www.gov.uk/trade-tariff
2) Call the HMRC Tariff Classification Service on 01702 366077 (you can read about it here http://customs.hmrc.gov.uk/channelsPortalWebApp/channelsPortalWebApp.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=pageVAT_ShowContent&id=HMCE_CL_001640&propertyType=document )

Hope this helps.
Kind regards,
Ian James.

Andrea Sweeting, on behalf of Cotecna Inspection Ltd in TW3.

Good morning Bob,

Cotecna Inspections Ltd offer a Classification Service for goods being shipped all over the world. We are experts in this field and have numerous high profile clients using this service.

There are a number of factors which need to be taken into consideration before we can advise the correct tarriff code for you to use. The most important one is which country you are importing to as some countries are using different WCO year codes.

If you are interested in confirming the correct tarriff code for this item and any others, please contact me or one of my colleagues at classification@cotecna.co.uk.

Please be aware if you use an incorrect tarriff code your Importer could incur fines in the Import Country.

Kind regards,

Andrea Sweeting

Hello Bob,
Whilst the first six digits of tariff codes are supposed to be almost universal they are frequently not universal. The remaining digits (the length required varies too) are definitely not universal, they relate to the country in question.

For the UK you need 8 digits to export. Clearly the UK tariff code is the one that must be quoted to UK customs on the UK export entry.

However, quoting this 8 digit code on your invoice can cause confusion at the point of import as at best only the first six digits will apply. You can use this link to look up the relevant import tariff code for your destination country. You can also see the import duty and any taxes that will be applied along with any special regulations and documents etc.
