Declare commercial goods you’re taking out of Great Britain in your accompanied baggage or small vehicles

Back to News

Find out how to declare goods you’re taking out of Great Britain to sell or use for your business that are under the total value of £2,500 and meet certain other conditions.

Commercial goods in your accompanied baggage, also known as merchandise in baggage, are goods which you plan to sell or use in your business, where:

  • a commercial transport operator does not carry them for you or you do not pay them to carry them for you
  • you’ve travelled from Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) carrying goods either in:
    • your baggage
    • a small vehicle that can carry no more than 9 people and weighs 3.5 tonnes or less

You must declare all commercial goods. There is no duty free allowance for goods you’re taking out to sell or use in your business.

You can use the merchandise in baggage online declaration service to declare accompanied commercial goods you intend to take out of Great Britain (in your luggage or small vehicle).
