Reply To: Duty Free – just a marketing gimmick?

Technically if you buy a £600 iPad duty free at LHR, you’ll have to declare it when you come back and pay 20% on top making it £720. Better to buy it in the High Street in the first place.

If you’re non UK resident, or intent on smuggling it back, tell the high streeet shop you live overseas and ask for a vat refund on leaving the country.
