Jane Kennedy: For travellers within the EU there are no personal allowances for excise goods. However, minimum indicative quantities are used as one of the criteria in assessing whether goods are for own use, and therefore not liable to UK tax or excise duty. All of the criteria are set down in legislation, and HMRC officers take account of these in assessing whether or not excise goods are for own use.
Travellers entering the UK from a non-EU country are permitted to bring with them limited amounts of excise goods without paying UK tax or duty, provided they are transported by them and are for their own use. Anyone with goods within these limits is assessed using similar criteria to that applied to EU travellers to determine whether the goods are for own use or for a commercial purpose.
