Do we have to pay Tax Duty to ship our samples?

ALL DUTY MUST BE PAID BY THE SHIPPER

When you send your samples by DHL/FedEx/UPS/…, just tick the box ‘shipper pays tax/duties’. 

Once you enter WWSA, you are automatically sent FORM A, which is essentially a proforma invoice that contains the delivery address and declares the samples with GBP1 value. We recommend enclosing Form A invoice stating that the products are “NO COMMERCIAL VALUE SAMPLES – NOT FOR SALE WITHOUT CHARGE TO CONSIGNEE FOR WOMENS WINE & SPIRITS AWARDS CONSIDERATION ONLY” 

Attach 3x copies of the FORM A on the outside of the parcels and send to this address:
