Metal stairs - commodity code

Hi

Looking at the options for importing some bespoke metal stairs from China and trying to understand what duty I will have to pay

I think I need this code to then work out the duty payable

all ready got an EORI number and the process is not looking too scary so far

thanks
Dave

Hello Dave, the metal they are made of is important for classification. For iron or steel the tariff heading for ‘ladders and steps’ would be: 7326 90 30 00 you can view the details on the trade tariff website here. Importing is straightforward so long as you are prepared - if you are using a shipping agent this article may be of interest:
