East Midlands Airport Duty Free
Do you need any clarification on your allowances before you start shopping in duty free at East Midlands Airport? Confused about the new Brexit rules? Worry not, we’ve got you covered! Read on below and we’ll explain the new rules!
New Duty-Free Rules
As Brexit has gone ahead, this means that there are new rules regarding duty-free allowances. However, it shouldn’t affect you too much as you can still bring a generous amount of tax-free allowance back to the UK. To make it easy for you, we will explain all the new rules and regulations below!
When you’re importing the goods to the UK, you have to ensure that they must be for yourself. They can be for personal use or given away as a present to someone else. You must remember to not go over the set allowance. But, if you happen to go over the allowance, then you have to declare that before landing in the UK, in whichever category the goods belong to. We will explain the different categories below!
You can bring a reasonable amount of alcohol. The set allowances are:
For tobacco allowance, there is a sizable amount available too! The limits are:
Alcohol and tobacco allowances if you’re under 17
If you’re under 17, then you are not given any personal duty-free allowance. But this doesn’t mean you can’t buy any goods, it only means that you’d have to pay tax and duty on your goods before you land in the UK.
Allowance for other goods
Considering bringing some cash with you to the UK? Well, you can! The duty-free limit is £390 for cash. You are allowed to bring more, but then you’d have to pay duty and tax on it and not just on cash that’s gone over the limit, rather the whole sum. So make sure you only bring the amount that’s duty-free as we’re sure you don’t want to pay extra!
