What is 'In Bond' ?
Wines bought In Bond are exempt from duty and VAT, and are stored in one of a number of warehouses controlled by HRMC. Our bonded warehouse of choice is Vinotheque, and we can setup an account for you free of charge. There are storage charges payable, at a very competitive rate (just under £5 ex VAT per case of 6 per annum). Please note that you may be subject to a minimum annual fee of £25 ex VAT so make sure you read the terms in full. The main benefits are:
- You don't pay duty and VAT until you wish to have the wine delivered to your home
- Vinotheque is temperature, humidity and light controlled and features impressive security. Insurance is also included in your storage charges. This ensures the safest and most beneficial conditions for your wine.
- If you wish to sell wine, bonded warehouses are the best solution to guarantee provenance and quality.
