UK-Mexico Trade Continuity Agreement ( TCA)
The UK has signed a trade agreement with Mexico which came into force on 1 June 2021.
This guidance provides information on changes to certain aspects of trade that are covered by the UK-Mexico agreement. It is for UK businesses trading with Mexico.
What the agreement includes
The continuity agreement includes provisions on:
- trade in goods - including provisions on preferential tariffs, tariff rate quotas, rules of origin and sanitary and phytosanitary measures
- trade in services
- intellectual property, including geographical indications
- government procurement
Tariff rates on goods
Preferential tariff rates for bilateral trade in goods between the UK and Mexico continue to apply as set out in the agreement. In some cases, the applied preferential rates for imports into the UK have been adjusted due to changes in the UK’s Most Favoured Nation ( MFN) tariff schedule (for example, removing of the entry price regime and certain complex agricultural duties).
