Hi, Sam here , one of the UK tax Experts here on Just Answer, thank you for your question and I shall reply shortly

Hi

Which state in the USA and the value of the perfume you plan to bring into the UK at a time

is this for you or to sell on ?

What will be your annual turnover projection on sales ?

Thanks

Sam

I don't know the State, but it is only one 1.6oz bottle at £43.63 for my personal use

Hi

Then there is no Customs duty as worth less than £120 but there will be Import VAT as over £18 which will cost 24% so you are looking at an additional £15 to pay bringing this up to £59 (rounded up)

Let me know if I can assist further, or if you have all that you need, it would be appreciated if you could rate me for the level of assistance I have provided

Thanks

Sam
