Default Excise Duty Spain to UK

Now that UK is out of the EU, would duty be payable on taking household effects to the UK, eg a TV bought in Spain 5 years ago, furniture etc. Anyone know? TIA

If you're changing residency from Spain to the UK, you need this:

If you're not changing residency, I.e. bringing stuff from a second home in Spain to the UK, then be prepared to pay. I won't say you will have to pay because the UK is still in the import controls grace period meaning they don't have the infrastructure or staff to check.
