I will be travelling to New York in a couple of months time, and would like to purchase a digital camera and maybe and MP3 Player to bring back to the UK. Does anyone know what the maximum value of gifts i can bring back to the UK is without being taxed?
don't bring packaging back and make your equipment being used and old and look innocent (niceley dressed, etc).
otherwise it's 200 pounds limit
As far as I know the limit is 250 pounds...
If you are lucky they wont check your bag, I came through recently with goods worth more, and the person before me was stopped and had their bag searched..lucky for me I just kept walking....
I smuggled a digital camera through a bout a year ago and did what MASSAGEUK said; Take it out of the packaging and take some pictures with it - just in case they check to see whether it has actually been used.
Thanks alot guys.....
I will give it a go and hopefully all goes well.
