Luftwaffe material on a memory stick from UK - Brexit effect

Hi,



Was just hit by the effect of Brexit - Received a memory stick with Luftwaffe documents (which makes this post qualified in this thread! ) from UK. The Swedish customs charged 20 p as import VAT and £ 7 as handling fee...

Will be interesting to see if UK Customs make similar charges when the memory stick is returned.



/Mike

I have a book coming from the UK. This morning I already got the bill from customs. 9% import VAT on the value of the book and shipping/handling cost plus €13,- custom fees (+ 21% on these fees). A total amount of €27,25.

People in the UK will have the same problem the other way around.

Thomas

Re: Luftwaffe material on a memory stick from UK - Brexit effect

Well I’m trying to buy an aviation book from the EU to the UK and the sellers post office in the EU won’t even send it at present saying it’s “too difficult”. I sent two large books from the UK to the US just before Christmas and it took 1 minute to sort out and pay for it 1st class tracked for £25, no trouble going that way. I do wonder sometimes.

I think this belongs in the “General” section.

I live in Ireland and have ordered quite a few books from the UK recently. All have arrived quickly with no additional charges.

Great-eBay purchases up to £135 are now subject to VAT to clear customs. A purchase of €29 gets €6.80 VAT. Thanks Brexiteers

On the upside I’ve just saved €300 on an impulse purchase and bought a strimmer from the UK with the money instead. Doesn’t fit quite aswell on my bookshelf but will hopefully do a better job of keeping my field in check
