UK EXCISE DUTY
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.
UK Excise Duty is payable on all alcoholic products, irrespective of strength, with the duty varying by product type. In addition, Customs Duty may be payable on goods from outside the EU, and the rate of duty varies by individual country or if there is a quota in place. This applies equally to bottles being used as tasting samples in the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) that meet the above criteria. It is an offence to avoid the payment of these taxes on samples. Further guidance may be obtained from the HMR&C National Advice Service – telephone +44(0) 8450 109000 and www.gov.uk
Entrants are fully responsible for ALL shipping costs including taxes, excise duty, custom charges and storage. The ISC will not be responsible for any of these charges. The purchase of UK Excise Duty is different to Customs Duty charges and these must be paid for by the entrant in advance of receipt of any entry by the ISC or they will be rejected from the challenge.
Spirits must be Delivered Duty Paid (DDP), therefore instruction to complete the import declaration should be given to your chosen shipping agent or courier company such as Fedex, DHL, UPS and TNT.
