1. Labelling and Documents
Clearly, label each box of spirits using the shipping label. Official LSC shipping labels are on the 'My shipping labels' section of 'My account'. You can download and print your shipping label. Please note that your reference number is on the shipping label and it is very important for LSC team to see your shipping label on your box and one copy inside your box. Failure to include these labels may result in your samples not being accepted at the LSC warehouse.
Proforma Invoice: All bottles must be accompanied by a pro forma invoice for the purpose of paying UK VAT. London Spirits Competition is not responsible for tracking the shipping of your wines, please ensure everything is in order before sending your wines.

3. Import License, Declaration & Duty
All duty, shipping costs, and taxes must be prepaid by the submitter of the samples.

Submitters should also be responsible for any fees related to the import declaration. Spirits cannot be accepted by our logistic partner if the charges associated with shipping have not been paid. Any penalty and additional cost incurred from the non-compliance of declaration requirement in the UK will be borne by the Submitters.
4. Do I Need To Insure My Spirits?
LSC and its logistic partner will not take responsibility for spirits damaged or lost whilst in transit. In the event that for reasons beyond the reasonable control of LSC, it is necessary or advisable for the LSC to canceled, LSC cannot accept any liability whatsoever for any direct or indirect loss of profit, damage or expense of any kind incurred as the result of such a cancellation.
