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

Books are 0% VAT rated in the UK. Therefore if you buy books abroad there is no extra charge when they arrive in the UK.

Not sure how it applies to electronic media, guess it is still 20%

I love paper even more now

I think that the UK government have taken VAT off eBooks (or announced the intention). Beware, though. It’s not just VAT, sometimes Customs open parcels, none too delicately, to check the contents match the declaration and then charge you about £8 for doing so. It’s happened to me twice with cd-audiobooks coming from the USA, so no doubt “taking back control” will mean the same for packages arriving from the EU.

Perhaps the additional costs of goods coming from the EU will encourage UK based individuals to buy UK made goods and for more to be manufactured in the UK. At the end of the day supply and demand makes a market.

One lives in hope Andy but I wouldn't hold my breath! It will adversely affect the eBay.de/be photo & the memorabilia markets though

Damn right, very sad too. I guess the best way is going to be to acquire a tame friend in Europe you can send stuff to and then onwards to the UK . Hmmmm, just so happens my best man now lives in France I have a cunning plan....

Writing, if the heading is accurate, from “Cork, Ireland” it must be a little easier to take a detached view of the UK’s prospects!

Hi Nick,

Mallow actually. I'm just trying to be objective. If prices become prohibitive then sales will drop/stop so if someone can offer goods at competitive price they will get the sales. I know it is overly simplistic and as Chris says above I wouldn't hold my breath but problems tend to create solutions - eventually.

Cheers

Andy Fletcher

The rate we’re going over here, could you start organising Red Cross parcels?

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

Serious question, as I can't keep up with the changes in the shipping, VAT, and Customs charges everywhere happening (it seems to me) every day: Has it reached the point where it's cheaper (no VAT or Customs charges on this side of the pond) to ship from the EU (or the U.K.) to the U.S. and then from here to final destination in the U.K. (or the EU)?

Just curious. I know that postage rates from the U.K. and from Germany to the U.S. have gone up but it doesn't seem as bad as the increases on the other side of the Atlantic.
