Quick Links: Value Added Tax (VAT)

The Falkland Islands is a self-governing overseas territory of the United Kingdom.

The European Community defines the Falkland Islands as being an "Overseas Country or Territory" (OCT) of a Member Country and not part of the European Customs Union. It is however entitled to Community import and export preferences, whilst at the same time retaining the freedom to impose its own import restrictions, duties and taxes.

The only goods liable to duties on importation to the Falkland Islands at the current time are alcoholic beverages and tobacco products.

There is no provision in respect of the imposition of add valorem duties (VAT).
