Thanks for your question.
Customs have produced a import tariff duty manual - which will advise what import duty might apply. This varies according to what the item is, where it is being imported from and its country of origin.
I have added a link re import duty and this also covers VAT duty (if the transfer is within the EU - which this isn't)
Clothing has various rates, dependent on what material the clothing is made from, so I had added a link here for the tariff manual, for you to refer to what the clothing charges will be. Or you can ring the tariff helpline on
