In Bond (IB) vs Duty Paid (DP)

  • Bonded warehouses are duty-free locations. To receive the wines at a location that is not a bonded warehouse, such as your private residence, Duty and VAT have to be paid to HMRC.
  • The Duty is £25 + VAT/ 9 litres of wine with an alcohol content between 5.5% and 15%.

For example: 2011 Montrose (6 x 150) – 1 case. The In-Bond price is £550. As 6 x 150 is equal to 9 litres the duty is £25 +VAT. So the total amount payable for duty paid stock is (£550 + £25) + VAT = £690. This price does not include delivery charge.
