On components you pay 4.7% duty on the value of goods + shipping costs. You then take that figure and add 20% VAT and then you add some randon amount that the shipping Company adds for ‘handling’ costs.
On £300 , assuming shipping costs of £50, you’d pay about £100 ish
I am looking to buy some new components from the US, but can’t work out the import duty and tax that I would need to pay.
I have had a look at the customs and exise website but its a minefield!
Does anyone have any info on own experience?
I am looking to bring in a new componebt item for about £300 or so.
