Beer Duty on Belgium Beer festival import

Question

Hi All,

We’re sending out a pallet (24 keykegs) of beer to a Belgium beer festival in the next couple of weeks. The beer duty has been paid on it in the UK. We have our own stand at this beer festival where we will be drafting the beer to customers for sale. Because we are not selling the beer onto any other companies to be then re sold. I’m wondering whether we still have to pay duty on import into Belgium. Please could someone let me know as soon as possible. Many thanks!!
Kind regards, Alex

Hi there Alex,

I recommend getting in touch with the Food and Drink Exporters Association who have a wealth of advice about the sector and tradeshows too.
