Exporting beer to Sweden – advice on VAT and duty


Hello, We have not yet started exporting but are looking to export to Sweden and just wondered if anyone has done this before and can provide some advice on VAT and duty, so we can ensure our costings are correct.

Re duty, I presume we do not pay UK duty, but would we need to pay Swedish duty? or would importer be liable for this cost.

Any advice gratefully received.


Thanks for the question – I’m sure you’ll get some good answers shortly.

In the meantime, we have a wealth of free guides and webinars about food and drink which you can find here:

Best of luck!
