Average pack of 20 cigarettes. £9.16Unreal we are lucky we have that personal allowance that is due to illegal tobacco manufacturing on the reserves. If not we would probably be in the same boat. How much is a pack of cigarettes there now?
Flue cured tobacco to bring into the UK is much cheaper. https://www.trade-tariff.service.gov.uk/headings/2401?currency=EUR&day=10&month=12&year=2019
Burge it doesn’t matter re the cost of importing , all the commodity codes are valid , it’s the fact you MUST have a license to import , you MUST register as a manufacturer, have a secure factory, or equally secure property to keep (your tobacco ) in . You MUST keep adequate records and pay all the duty as you make your cigars. For example
it would cost me appx £200 to get a beginners kit , so on average a £10 outlay before I could smoke one . Failure to comply , means seize & destroy, fines including all duty payable and possibly a prison sentence
