Shopping FAQ

How will I know if I need to declare goods brought to the UK or pay customs charges?

You can bring some goods from abroad without having to pay UK tax or ‘duty’ (customs charges), as long as they’re for your own use. 

From an EU country you won’t need to pay tax on goods you bring in from the EU as long as you: transport them yourself, will use them yourself or give them as a gift and have paid tax and duty on them in the country you bought them from. 

From outside of the EU, alcohol and tobacco products are subject to an allowance, as well as goods worth over £390. 

We recommend you read the full guidance on the government’s bringing goods into the UK guide.
