Where do I enter my product commodity codes?

Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide explains where to add or amend commodity codes for your products in Sage 50cloud Accounts.


Commodity codes are used worldwide to classify goods for import and export and they help traders to:

  • Complete declarations and paperwork.
  • Check Duty or VAT requirements.
  • Check for duty reliefs.

It's easy to record or update the commodity codes in your product records. Let's take a look.

TIP: Commodity codes are reviewed by the World Customs Organisation every 5 years and the latest changes were made on 1 January 2022. For help to find the latest commodity codes, visit the HMRC Trade Tariff tool or download their 2022 full goods classification.


Add or edit a commodity code

  1. Click Products and services then double-click the product you want to update.
  2. In the Product Details section, complete the Intrastat Com. Code and Com. Code Description fields.


    TIP: The Intrastat Comm. Code field accepts 8 characters. If required you can use the box to the right for 2 additional characters, or for supplementary units. If your code is only 6 digits, add 00 at the end.   

  3. Click Save, and click Close.

That's it, your product record now shows the commodity code information. If needed, you can add this information to your reports. Read more >

TIP: If you want to change the same commodity code on multiple records, in Sage 50cloud Accounts Standard and above, you can save time with Batch changes.
