How does “SAVE TAX & DUTY” work, because we use DHL, UPS, FedEx to ship samples?

 All wines are received in a bonded warehouse, so no tax and duty will be charged to the sender.  

For spirits, a flat fee of £18 is charged per sample together with the entry fee.

Once you enter WWSA, you are automatically sent FORM A, which is essentially a proforma invoice.  It also contains the UK bonded warehouse delivery address with all tax numbers and declaring the samples with GBP0 value.
 
So all you need to do is attach 3x copies of the FORM A on the outside of the parcels and no tax and duty will be charged on arrival of the samples in the UK.
