WWX partners with reputable freight forwarders and logistics operators to provide quality-assured, cost-efficient wine logistics solutions to WWX buyers and sellers.

UNITED KINGDOM TO HONG KONG

The Process

All wines will be shipped by air after Buyers pay in full. They will be collected from temperature-controlled cellars of WWX sellers. Wines will be carefully handled and loaded onto direct, non-stop flights from London to Hong Kong, after which they will be delivered directly to WWX temperature-controlled warehouse. Wines will be dispatched by air-conditioned trucks to WWX buyers’ HK delivery address according to our local delivery schedule. The whole process will take no more than 20 to 25 working days from the point of Buyer’s full payment.

Part 3 GST and Duties for all wines importing to Singapore

The Singapore Government charges an alcohol tax of SGD 88 per litre of pure alcohol (100%). As an example, for a bottle of wine of 13.5% alcohol, tax payable would be SGD 88 * 0.75 * 13.5% = SGD 8.91.

On top of that, the Singapore Government also levies a Good and Services Tax (GST) of 7% on the import cost of the bottle of wine.

These will all be automatically calculated for you upon checkout and will be included in the final transaction price.
