Customs and Import Duties

Alcohol products sold at Whisky Lines are subject to Cyprus taxation. If we are sending products to an address within the European Union (EU), prices are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT). This applies to all countries that make up the EU except for Germany and Sweden where UK alcohol tax and VAT are deducted and local alcohol taxes and VAT are added at the time of sale.

If we are shipping to an address outside the EU, we will not charge VAT. However, your order will be subject to local taxes and duties upon arrival in the recipient's country, which are levied once the package reaches customs clearance.

Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you will need to contact the recipient's local customs office for further information.

Refusal to pay the local import duties and taxes will result in the goods either being:

  • destroyed by customs; or
  • goods being returned to sender at the cost of the consignee (costs will be deducted from any refund owed).

If we are shipping to an address in the US, India or Russia, customs charges will be calculated and added to your order at the time of checkout so that can we complete the customs clearance procedure as soon as it arrives in the destination country. Your order will not be subject to any further customs charges.
