Here is a reminder of your duty and tax free allowances if travelling abroad this Christmas.
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 provide the following guidelines as to an acceptable maximum for personal use. If you exceed these limits, you are more likely to be subject to further questioning.
If you are travelling outside the EU you are allowed to bring the following back to the UK for your own use without any UK tax or duty liabilities.
It remains to be seen if any changes will be made to the EU limits after the Brexit transition period ends.Back to Newsletters
