Commodity codes and reporting

Last updated: 6 November 2017

Commodity codes

Commodity codes classify goods for import and export. You need them to:

  • fill in declarations and other paperwork
  • check if there's duty or VAT to pay
  • find out about duty reliefs

Go to GOV.UK to look up commodity codes, duty and VAT rates
