For this express edition of the Brexit & Beyond technical webinar series which aims to break down what Brexit means for different sectors and the key considerations for doing business with the UK post-Brexit, we will be joined by a guest speaker from the Department for International Trade (DIT).
This shorter session will seek to explain the UK Global Tariff and the key differences between this and the EU’s Common External Tariff. Wider MFN (most favoured nation) tariff policy will also be addressed.
After the session, participants will be encouraged to ask any questions they may have on the topic of the UK Global Tariff to the speaker.
Date: Thursday 13th May, 10:30 – 10:50 BST / 11:30 – 11:50 CEST
