Import License, Declaration & Duty

Submitters should also be responsible for any fees related to the import declaration. Beer cannot be accepted by our logistic partner if the charges associated with shipping have not been paid. Any penalty and additional cost incurred from the non-compliance of declaration requirement in UK will be borne by the Submitters.
Do I Need To Insure My Beer?
