Do I need an Export Licence?
I am trying to set up an on-line shop where I can sell British Real Ales.
The business is for private importers (not retailers) in Japan.
I will not sell any alcohol in UK nor any other countries outside Japan.
Due to the high postage and custom regulations in Japan, each shipment will be quite small, e.g. 2 x 500ml.
I will purchase bottles of beer from my local retailers, supermarkets or directly from breweries.
As far as I understand, beer duty are already paid.
My questions are:
Do I need to apply an Export Licence?
Do I need to register as an alcohol retailer?
Looking forward to your answers.
Thank you for your help.
