Re: Duty Free Allowance Increase

I thought that applied only to import tax. VAT still applicable on items over £18.

Re: Duty Free Allowance Increase

The £18 limit is for goods that you order from abroad.  The new limits I mentioned are for items you bring back with you when you return from your hols Smiley

Re: Duty Free Allowance Increase

Just a reminder that duty free allowances increase this week.  You can now bring 340 GBP of goods into the UK from non EU countries.
