How much will I have to pay Customs for a DVD box set costing £49
I would say about £12, ish`
Assuming the whole lot including P&P is £49.00, I think you add 4% on the total for import duty (£1.96) = £50.96. Then add on 17.5% VAT (£8.92) = £59.88, then add on the Post Offices handling fee of £4.00. Grand total: £63.88, meaning an extra £14.88.
I think this is right, assuming I've understood a previous thread correctly.
Ny Bob tin was £40 from Amazon.ca, and I got stung for just over a tenner
I`m sure it varies though
I got done for £11.49 on a DVD from Playusa costing £44.99 but don't know what they charged for the postage .
The postage is usually free
A little "trick"
Try addressing your DVDs, or anything for that matter, that go over the £18 limit to multiple ppl
Mr and Mrs ImportDodge and Family
In some cases this will be considered 4 people. So you can take the £18 limit for one person and apply it 4 times
i.e. 4 x 18 is the new limit of the parcel
Not tried this for a while but used to work
Works like alcohol limits, the more people the more you can bring in
Nah.... you have just been lucky. Liability for tax is based solely on the package value; the number of addressees is irrelevant.
Thanks for the replies I think I'll just buy the R2 version from Amazon.co.uk it's less hassel
What Dvd is it?
