Hi again,

how much tax duty I will have to pay if I bring more than 400 cigarettes from Belgium

Your allowance is 200, but if your spouse etc is with you they have a similar allowance too.
When you declare you may be charged import duty and VAT, but it does not always happen. VAT is 20% and Tobacco Product Duty is at 16.5% plus GBP 37-90 per every 200 pack.
