Calculating vat and duty on importations into UK from Switzerland

I saw the interesting post about vat and import duty limits and calculations for bringing goods into Switzerland. Does anyone know if there is a resource to calculate the costs involved with moving belongings/goods back to the UK from Switzerland? e.g. spirits, wine, electrical goods etc.

If the goods are transported by road, would it be the first border encountered e.g. France/Germany that would have to handle customs or on entry to the UK?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Goosfraba, I'll be making the same move and would also like to know about this.

I don't have a great deal of stuff but a couple of expensive (CHF 4k) cycles, a lot of spirits, TV, computer, nice bbq etc I have receipts with proof (except for the drinks) that they are not new.
