UK Duty Stamp Service

Entrants are responsible for all charges relating to UK duties, taxes and customs clearance when sending bottles into the competition (this is not included in the entry fee).These are payable even though the samples are not for commercial use.

Duty

The Commissioners of HMR&C require evidence of payment of duties and VAT as enshrined in The Alcoholic Liquor Duties Act 1979 and enforced by The Customs & Excise Management Act 1979. Procedures to achieve this are stipulated in the Customs Tariff and Public Notices covering alcoholic products. It is an offence to avoid the payment of these taxes on samples. 

For more information about relating to UK duties, taxes and clearance please click here.

All bottles and other retail containers of spirits with a strength of 30% alcohol by volume or more and of a capacity of 35cl or more, are required to bear a duty stamp. The ISC can assist you with the duty stamp service through our bonded warehouse.

If require the UK Duty Stamp Service, you can add them in the checkout process or purchase them later.
