I bought a laptop in the UK in Aug 2019. I subsequently relocated to Sweden later in that year. Now the laptop is faulty and the shop that sold the laptop has agreed to a refund providing I post the item back to them. Will I be charged duty by customs when I ship this item back to the UK? Is there any way to avoid this by completing some form etc? Thanks in advance Omar

You can get a relief if you’re re-importing goods into the UK that have previously been exported or transported from the UK.

This is known as Returned Goods Relief.

Please find more information by using the following link:

Pay less import duty and VAT when re-importing goods to the UK   .

Thank you.
