Royal Mail, Parcelforce or the courier company will contact you by explaining how to pay any VAT, duties and fees to process customs.

They will normally keep your package for about 3 weeks. If you have not paid fees before, it will be returned.


When you pay VAT, you have to pay it on the goods sent to countries not members of the European Union or with special statutes of the European Union, for example the Canary Islands:

  • donations are worth more than £ 39
  • other goods valued at more than £ 15
  • alcohol, tobacco products and perfumes (eg Perfume, eau de toilette and cologne) of any value

You must pay VAT on all goods sent by mail.

VAT is charged on the total value, and you will pay a certain amount according to the following criteria:

  • the value of your goods
  • postage, packaging and insurance

Customs Duty

Starting with a certain value for the goods, you must free yourself of a customs duty. The value of a good corresponds to the price of a product at the price of its postage, its packaging and its insurance.

Anything under £135 No charge
Gifts worth £135-£630 2.5%, but rates are lower for some goods
Gifts above £630 and other goods above £135 The rate depends on the type of goods and where they came from

When your goods are shipped by the EU, your excise tax may be included in the price, otherwise your goods may be seized.

The conditions that your goods must meet:

  • Spirits greater than 35 centiliters without British service stamp
  • cigarettes or hand-operated tobacco without health warnings or British tax marks

If you return your goods or you are too busy,
