The FIPRE code can now be used to apply for secondary preferential treatment
When you declare goods for secondary preferential treatment in the Customs Clearance Service or with a message, you can now declare goods with a FIPRE code. The FIPRE code has not previously been used when declaring goods for secondary preferential treatment. The instructions on preferential treatments have also been updated on the Customs website.
If the goods didn’t fit in the original tariff quota and you haven’t entered a secondary preferential treatment for the goods in the customs declaration, you can still apply for secondary tariff quota or preferential treatment for the goods retrospectively with an amendment application.
Changes to applications for secondary preference tariff quota – the code FIPRE is not currently used (Customer notice 15 July 2021)
