    Hi folks -

    I've on pre order seasons 1-6 of friends with play. Their due for arrival on the 27th October. WIll i get hit with tax when their shipped? I'm in Ireland so i'm not sure what the story is with customs import tax. Would it be better to cancel the order and then order one individually each week or something? I want to have them by christmas so i suppose i'd still have them in time if i did that. Anyone have any suggestions or previous experience?

    Thanks,
    Mick

    If im right then youve pre-ordered the region 2 ones so therefore no customs tax?

    Well I was under the impression only region 1 disks from the states over a price of £18 were subject to customs.

    Obviously this also includes buying from outside the EU ? but thats what I understood it to be in my laymans terms.

    over £18 R2 dvds from play come with a sticker saying UKTax paid: hence no customs.
    only R1 can be subject to customs tax.
