Duty Allowances & Cigarette Prices

How many cigarettes, or smoking/pipe tobacco can you take back to the UK? Read the following which is an extract from the Government website:

If you are travelling to the UK from the European Union (EU), you can bring in an unlimited amount of most goods for your own use without paying tax or duty, but certain rules apply.

If a customs official from the UK Border Agency (UKBA) thinks you may be bringing in excise goods such as alcohol and tobacco from the EU for commercial use - perhaps to sell to other people or simply for reimbursement - they may ask you questions and make checks. You may be asked about:
• the type and quantity of goods you've bought
• why you bought them
• how you paid for them
• how often you travel
• how much you normally smoke or drink
Although there are no limits on the amount of alcohol and tobacco you can bring in from EU countries, customs officials are more likely to ask you questions if you have more than the following:

Cigarettes 800   Cigarillos 400   Cigars 200
Smoking tobacco 1kg   Spirits 10 litres   Wine 90 litres
Beer

110 litres

  Fortified wine 20 litres      

Please note that the limits for Cigarettes and Tobacco was reduced on 1 October 2011.
