I am travelling to the UK from India with family on a vacation. I want to carry my official laptop just to check emails and respond if necessary on a crisis. I have the permission letter from my company for the same.
Do I need to declare the laptop at UK customs on arrival? Its value is more than the 390 GBP limit mentioned on gov.uk website for other goods. How does this rule actually apply? I will be taking my digital camera, phone and kindle also. Do I need to declare those? Should I pay duty on them?
I imagine that this rule does not apply to items for personal use and which you will take back with you. Can somebody please clear this up for me?
