I would like to order a DVD box set costing £28.99 how much import tax will I have to pay on it?
If you do have to pay duty it would be 4 % duty plus 17.5% vat on top of that and there could be a collection charge of about £4.
A bit back it may have been sent to you as a gift but customs have closed this loophole with a lot of DVD sellers.
I'm buying it from cd wow Even with import tax-it's still cheeper than buying it in the UK
Which set is it mate as if you get caught by customs and the post office you will end up paying nearly £40 for it.
I got caught for a £29.99 box set from CD-Wow and had to pay about £13 customs charges on top.
christ am i crapping myself now...... amazon.ca have just shipped the monster legacy collection!!!!! Paid £35 for it so i could be stung big time..... anyone know whether postie will take a cheque or should i have some dough ready and waiting for what is unfortunately inevitable?
sorry mate,no postmen are allowed to take cash anymore!!!!
You will have to go to your local post office and pay them instead
How is this called delivery then?????????
I gave cash to my postie for a delivery from cd-wow just a couple of weeks ago
I'm thinking about buying "Angel" DVD box sets! (pls don't laugh!)
The region 1 version seem to be cheaper than the region 2 version
you might get lucky and not get caught, i ordered the scarface limited boxset from dvdsoon just recently and never got stung by customs.
Can anyone please enlighten me as to the threshold from which import charges will be incurred?
Thanks to anyone
anything over £18 will incur charges...
that's usually the case, yes, but various e-tailers have offers on the Angel Region 2 dvds at the moment (or will have shortly) so they'll be about £30.
What e-tailers have offers on the Angel DVD box sets?
I've checked Amazon.co.uk and Play.com both are selling them for about £58.99 to £65.59
Cd wow have the region 1 version for £27.99
I have started to the think that region 2 DVD's are a rip off
Yes R2 prices on Buffy & Angel have long been considered as a rip off!
All the R2 Buffy boxsets are on sale everywhere at the moment for about £28 - not sure about Angel though. They do come on Sale fairly frequently though, I paid no more that £35 for any of mine...
I think I read that they are all going to be re-released in cheaper packaging (as with the X-Files) later this summer... not sure where I read that though...
Amazon.co.uk have Season 1-3 of Angel available for pre-order at £30.79 and will be in Standard Plastic Case Packaging so I would imagine that means they will be in Amaray cases and not in fold out packaging like they currently are, same goes for Season 1-7 of The X Files.
I think I'' get the region 1 versions. I read some where that the region 2 version of Buffy were cut- is this true?
One of the Episodes in Season 3 is Cut by 8 seconds. Also, after Season 3 the R2 releases are Widescreen where as the R1 releases are Fullscreen and I know which I would prefer.
