Virtual Tariff Classification Masterclass

Wednesday 17th February 2021
9:30am - 4:30pm

Government funding for this course could be available to you through the Customs Grant Schemes

The purpose of the course:
Our Tariff Classification Strategy will cover the Harmonised System and the new UK Global Tariff, together with their individual cycles of change.  You will learn how to build the code, and appreciate why you and your supplier/customer in a different country may have a different commodity code.

We will also discuss the EU's Combined Nomenclature and TARIC measures.

Topics covered:
The General Rules of Interpretation (GIRs) will be examined in detail, to ensure you understand how to apply these rules when performing classification, including:

  • The importance of Section Notes and Chapter Notes
  • How to classify if goods are incomplete or unfinished, or unassembled/disassembled
  • What if the goods are mixtures or combinations
  • What to do if goods are classifiable under two or more headings
  • Mixtures and composite goods
  • Goods put up in sets for retail sale
  • How to manage packaging and cases

We will consider the various guidance available, including:

  • Classification Rulings
  • Classification Guidance
  • Explanatory Notes
  • Court Decisions
  • Tribunal Decisions
  • Other Customs Authorities Decision

We will cover when it may be appropriate to apply for a UK Advanced Tariff Ruling (equivalent to the EU's Binding Tariff), and what this will mean to you going forwards.

An overview will be provided in respect of import customs duty, including new UK counterparts to:

  • Most Favoured Nation (MFN) Rates
  • Anti-Dumping Duty
  • Countervailing Duty
  • Tariff Quotas
  • Agricultural Components (Meursing Codes)
  • Tariff Suspensions
  • INN Pharmaceutical Substances
