Earlier this week I decided to "test the water" with an order of 185 from DM Toys in Germany.
German tax was not deducted from the order and on arrival in the UK I was requested by UPS to pay 20% UK VAT plus 11.50 handling fee before delivery.
Quite an expensive experiment but because I paid online at least the delivery was not delayed and it arrived next day.
It would appear that HMRC don't have a VAT amnesty. :(

Be careful also of the Haribo tax! :D

Hi Matt. I assume not being able to go on your travels has resulted in an attack of boredom and an uncontrollable urge to read old posts. :D
Hopefully things will improve soon and you can get back on track. :thumbsup:
