Thank you for your response. I have been through the recommended web-page and regarding ' who can apply for temporary relief' the following has been mentioned - "You can apply if you’re the person using the goods or you’re arranging an import declaration for the goods to be used on your behalf." Would that be the museum, then? I am not clear whether as the artist I should arrange for the import formalities or whether the museum should be doing so as they are 'using the goods' for an exhibition. In which case does the following apply? - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/pay-no-customs-duty-and-vat-on-importing-museum-and-gallery-exhibits My apologies for taking up your time with these questions; I just need to understand what the best practise would be. Thank you again for your time and patience.
Hello, I am a french artist and will be exhibiting my works in a museum in the UK for three months. I will be transporting my works personally by road, via the channel tunnel, to and fro. The works are not destined for sale and will be returned to France after the exhibition. Under what category do I declare these works, do I have to pay VAT or other charges or am I exempt? Thank you for your guidance.
