|You must declare goods that you take with you to sell outside the UK – for example if they are in your baggage or in a private vehicle.
There is a different process if you take goods abroad temporarily (for example samples for a trade fair) or use a courier or freight forwarder.
Most countries have a limit on the value of goods you can bring in duty free.
If you are taking goods to another country temporarily for business reasons and you think you’ll be over the duty free limit, you can usually get an ATA Carnet to avoid paying duty. This includes things like:
If you are taking a vehicle, get a CPD Carnet instead.
If your goods have a total value of £1,500 or less, you may be able to make any customs declaration required online. Otherwise, you will need to make a full export declaration.
