Here is a reminder for travellers of their duty and tax free allowances whilst travelling this summer.
Travelling to an EU country
Where tobacco or alcohol is brought in from another EU country, no duties or tax will be payable as long as you can demonstrate that the goods are for your own use and that you paid the relevant taxes and duties on the purchase.
However, HMRC provides the following guidelines as to an acceptable maximum for personal use. Travellers that exceed these limits are more likely to be subject to further questioning.
Travelling to a non-EU country
Each adult travelling is allowed to bring the following back to the UK for their own use without any UK tax or duty liabilities.
