I am going to transfer my normal place of residency from the EU to the UK. To transfer my personal belonging, the plan is to rent a van and move them over myself. I already know that I can (and should) apply for ‘transfer of residence’ (ToR) relief on tax and duty for personal belongings.
However, my plan proceeds as follows: I bring with me all the belongings that I believe might fit into the new apartment, and if something does not fit, I take it back to the EU with the same van two to three days later.
Do I need to apply again for a relief on tax/duty for my way back to the EU? Or can I somehow use the fact that I just recently crossed the border in the other direction with the same things. How would I prove this?
I admit that I was not able to find equally accessible information on tax relief for the transfert to the EU. Any links to generally understandable websites are highly appreciated.
