Hi,

Can someone englighten me the meaning of 'Under Bond'. I saw this terms in websites saying wines are 'Under Bond'.
Original Post
It's items that have been purchased, shipped to a bonded warehouse. The owner hasn't taken delivery so the the taxes haven't been paid. Hence, if you buy "under bond" in Great Britain you don't pay the VAT. When you ship it out of the country.
I believe the answer is no. I think there is a way to recover the VAT when you ship out of the country unless it's been paid by the in country seller. I don't know why someone would have paid the VAT if the wine is "In Bond."

Go to www.Uvine.com. They have more information on this subject.

Well bman, according to Fleming Miss Galore was ... immune ... to the charms of Mr Bond, and hence would never be found under him. If it had been Jane Bond instead ...

Some concessions had to be made in the '60s when the movie was made.

I must confess that I've never read one of the books, so I stand corrected Pauly. PG took up all my time for literature.....

Welcome Bozzy! Smile I struggled with the quote function at first too, keep at it.
bman,

The Bond books are pretty good, although they later ones aren't as good as the earlier ones. A word of warning, generally from Goldfinger on about the only thing common between the books and the films is the title.
