What is changing with ‘Rules of Origin’?

Electric Vehicles made in the EU could soon be subject to a 10% tariff when entering the UK. A temporary exclusion to tariffs, agreed as part of the Brexit deal, is due to end on 31 December 2023, although an alternative deal may yet prevent tariffs being imposed.

As the deadline for the current deal approaches, members need to be aware of the possible outcomes and what they could mean for the availability and costs of electric vehicles from 01 January 2024.

The BVRLA has created a Rules of Origin for electric vehicles Guidance page to explain the current situation and potential outcomes, alongside a host of answers to frequently asked questions.

Members are encouraged to read the Guidance to understand what it means for them and their customers.
