DUTIES AND VAT
IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION – The UK Government announced some changes to the Alcohol Duty System which took effect from the 1st August 2023.
The duty is now based on the alcohol content and therefore increases the fee on goods with the higher ABV% and decreases it on the lower ABV% goods.
A temporary exception applies for the period between the 1st August 2023 to the 1st February 2025 to all wines (including Sparkling wine) with an alcohol content between 11.5% and 14.5% ABV, which will have the duty charged as if it is 12.5% ABV.
Also note that, differently from the previous duty rates, sparkling wine will be treated as still wine and it will see a reduction of £2.28 (ex.VAT) per case of 12 bottles (12x75cl).
Duty on goods above 22% ABV will vary depending on % of alcohol content.
The table below illustrates the changes applied based on the ABV%.
Please note that VAT will apply on duty charges shown above. The current UK VAT rate is 20%.
All rates are subject to annual increases. Where a customer has paid duty in advance and wines are subsequently cleared from bond at a higher rate, we reserve the right to pass on this increase.
GOODS QUALITY CONTROL
VM Targets Ltd makes every effort to ensure that the quality of the wines we sell complies with the code of condition we severely adhere to. We are very rigid in selecting the provenance of all the wines we offer and concerned about their storage condition. As a result quality and condition issues rarely occur. Therefore, with no obligations, it will be at complete discretion of VM Targets Ltd to consider the replacement of the goods.
VM Targets Ltd cannot guarantee that wines will always show at their best. Despite of the opinions or beliefs, the ageing and maturation can affect wines in different ways and we will not be liable for subjective judgments such as quality or drinkability. All wines are sold as seen and for old vintages we will not accept returns should these be exhausted, corked or contaminated in any way. We are not responsible for condition and state of wine or whether the wine does not correspond to the qualities, which could possibly be expected from its description.
VM Targets Ltd will not be liable for any failure to meet our obligations occasioned by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
All contracts are subject to English law and jurisdiction. All wines are offered subject to market movement and remaining unsold. We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions from time to time without prior notice. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are satisfied with any change that may have occurred.
