As UK is no longer a part of EU and Customs Union, all removals to and from the UK are required to go through the Customs clearance process. You are eligible for the tax-free entry if you meet the following criteria:
- All your goods have been used for at least 6 months in the country of origin before the move
- The usual place of residence has been outside the customs area for at least 12 consecutive months
- Goods are brought to a new place of residence within a period of no longer than 12 months after arrival
The documents required for tax-free customs clearance are listed below.
If you are not eligible for tax-free entry, VAT and DUTY will be applied by the customs authorities upon entry.
Please note that in case of inheritance, cars and motorbikes or diplomatic removals additional documentation is required - please contact us for more details.
