Theresa May has asked officials to draw up "revised proposals" for post-Brexit customs arrangements after a key meeting with her most senior ministers.
A customs partnership- believed to be the preferred choice of chancellor of the exchequer Phillip Hammond- would see the United Kingdom collect European Union tariffs on the bloc's behalf on goods from outside countries and could go some way to addressing the Irish border problem.
A contentious issue in the Brexit debate, the customs union sets tariffs for all EU member states meaning goods can be moved from one country to another within the bloc without further taxes being imposed.
One alternative, known as the customs partnership, has already been rejected by Leavers including David Davis and Liam Fox, who claim it would leave the United Kingdom too closely tied to the European Union after Brexit.
Appearing on BBC radio on Wednesday, Mr Rees-Mogg denied the 30-page document handed to Mrs May was an ultimatum but said that a customs partnership would not work.

Automotive revenue rose only 1 percent from the prior quarter to $2.74 billion (roughly Rs. 18,300 crores). The company's goal was to be cranking out 5,000 Model 3 vehicles weekly in about two months .
May is not only under pressure at home.
Concerns were voiced over whether the technological solution would satisfy concerns in Brussels about the potential for a porous border and whether the partnership arrangement would allow the United Kingdom to have a truly independent trade policy.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said there is a "real risk" an October deadline for a solution on the Irish border could be missed if "real and meaningful progress" is not made by next month.
The European Commission has been pushing back against both United Kingdom proposals amid reports that that officials in Brussels view them as unworkable.
The prime minister's spokesman said her views were "evolving" after 60 MPs signed a letter condemning proposals for a customs partnership as "Brexit in name only".
US Trade Delegation Arrives In China Amid Rising Tensions
The trade talks to be held from May 3 to May 4 in Beijing will have the USA delegation, led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin . The official China Daily said in an editorial China would "stand up to the U.S.' bullying as necessary".
The easiest way to solve the problem, May's critics say, is to stay in the customs union or negotiate a new one along the lines proposed by the main opposition Labour Party.
Earlier Mrs. May told MPs there were "a number of ways" to deliver Britain's objectives on customs arrangements after Brexit.
A final decision is unlikely to be taken at Wednesday's meeting of the cabinet sub-committee on Brexit, although the clock is ticking ahead of an European Union summit at the end of June.
Brexit campaigners are hoping that the appointment of free-market advocate Sajid Javid as Home Secretary this week could shift the balance in their favour on the sub-committee.
The UK's Exiting the European Union Committee indicated their concerns in a report on the government's customs plans, especially in regard to Ireland, with committee chair Hilary Benn calling for "credible, detailed proposals as to how it can operate a "frictionless border" between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland" while exiting the single market and customs union.
