Default UK Tax and Customs for Overseas Shipment

Hey, Everyone!

Does anyone have any information or experience on shipping furniture to the UK from the US? We have had quotes from multiple moving companies and they are in our price range. I’m just a little confused about UK customs receiving the shipment? It’s mainly furniture and a few medium sized boxes (no appliances). Will we have to pay Tax and Customs Duty on these items? Any information would be appreciated.


Thank you.

Thank you.
You need to complete a Transfer of Residence. This then enables your shippers to import your personal goods without tax.

Have a read of this https://www.gov.uk/guidance/transfer...-great-britain
Its pretty straightforward & lots of us have done it, so just come back with your questions!
