Wondered if anyone can help. I have bought items from overseas before but never to any great value - usually under £10 so have never had to worry about tax and duty to be paid. As far as I can work out if I was to order anything higher in value I would need to pay 20% VAT on anything over £15 and 2.5% customs duty on items over £135.
Has anyone got any experience of this - have I got the figures right or have I missed something. I have no objection to paying the taxes but don’t want to be landed with an unexpected bill. Also how are the taxes paid?
Thanks in advance
