Guys,

Just a quick bit of information that most of you might already know but for those that don't.

The Import Duty Bracket has been reduced from £18 to £15 from outside the EU so any item you order above £15 is liable for both import Tax and VAT.

Great isn't it, the price if things go up so the drop the limit, got to love this government - were in a recession so we will rip money from our people even more!!!!!

On an up note, I noticed when placing an order with Amazon.com (sorry if this goes against Forum advertising) and found that they now work out and charge you import duty on you order, this saves it getting to the post office and them charging you £8 on top so at least that's something.

(p.s. this is not a topic to start a political debate, it was for information purposes only)

We have to pay import to the UK on anything outside the EU above £15

Our post office also carge us £8 on top for them telling us.

VAT is charged at 20% plus import duty which differs depending on the item being imported.

I wouldn't mind but we already pay the sales tax on the items in America so we pay tax twice!!!

Ive been hit several times and can end up adding 50% to the cost.

If its marked as a gift you can get up to £40 it all depends on how it's marked from the shipper
