A new set of tariffs for imports from developing countries into the UK will enter force on Monday (19 June). The Developing Countries Trading Scheme (DCTS) replaces the UK Generalised System of Preferences – the continuity system that was put in place following the country’s departure from the EU. The government has issued an FAQ document to support traders prepare for the requirements that will be introduced as part of the new scheme, including those relating to the documentary evidence that needs to be provided to claim lower duty rates on imports under the scheme. The government has advised that the proof of origin documents required under UK GSP will continue to be needed under DCTS. It explains that this means that “an origin declaration (referring to DCTS instead of GSP) and Form A, both completed by the exporter in the DCTS beneficiary country” will need to be provided. The UK will continue to use UNCTAD’s ‘Form A’ document for preferential tariffs.
