The tariff codes / reduced fee amounts differ from country to country but the principles apply to all countries that are signed up to the harmonized tariff (HS tariff) system.

I will see if I can dig out where to look up the codes for each country

I'm curious if I should be adding the code to all international shipments that I send out or just to the UK.

Parcelforce incorrectly charged me duty on an item that was marked as a gift and below the £39 limit.

They are stating that if I claim the VAT back from HMRC, I will also get the £13.50 handling fee refunded by that correct? I would have thought I'd only get the VAT back and Parcelforce would have to refund me the £13.50 handling fee?
