How to Shop Tax Free
Import Duties into Great Britain
Please note that when offering Tax Free Shopping to a traveller from the United Kingdom (not including Northern Ireland) import taxes / duties will need to be paid if they exceed the personal allowance of £ 390 before a VAT refund can be authorised. UK travellers can declare goods online from 72 hours before they are due to arrive in the UK. Please follow this link if you need to declare and pay for any goods above £ 390 (or the currency equivalent where you bought the goods)
After Travellers have declared their goods
If Travellers have given their email address, they will get an email receipt. If not, advise the traveller to make a note of the reference number they are given.
Customs officials may ask for the receipt or confirmation number at the UK border.
