    Neil will no doubt post all the technical bit when he sees this post, I know he has done in the past but I can't find it. I'm certain its higher than $18 though but yeh he will probably give you something to read

    2. Postal packages imported (arriving) from countries outside the EU



    2.1 Does the sender have to declare the goods?

    Yes. Under international postal agreements the sender must complete a customs declaration (form CN22 or CN23) which in most cases should be fixed to the package. The declaration includes a description of the goods, the value and whether they are gifts or commercial items. Any Post Office abroad should be able to give advice to the sender.
    You are legally responsible for the information on the declaration; therefore it is in your own interest to ensure, wherever possible, that the sender abroad makes a complete and accurate declaration. If no declaration is made, or the information is inaccurate, the package may be delayed while we make further enquiries, or in some cases the package and its contents may be seized.


    2.2 Do I have to pay import duties and/or import VAT on goods sent to me?

    Most goods arriving in the UK from outside the EU are liable to any or all of the following taxes:

    • customs duty
    • excise duty
    • import VAT

    and must be paid whether:

    • you purchase the goods or receive them as a gift
    • the goods are new or used (including antiques)
    • the goods are for your private use or for re-sale.



    2.3 What are the limits for customs duty and import VAT?


    • Commercial consignments of £18 or less are free from customs duty and import VAT. For example, goods purchased over the internet with an intrinsic value not exceeding £18, will not be charged any duty or VAT but this does not include alcohol, tobacco products, perfume or toilet waters. See paragraph 2.5, 2.6 and section 3.
    • If you are sent a gift with a value of £40 or less, and which complies with the rules shown in paragraph 2.4, it will be free from customs duty and import VAT, but this does not include alcohol, tobacco, perfumes and toilet waters.
    • Customs duty becomes payable if the value of the goods is over £135 but duty is waived if the amount of duty calculated is less than £9.

    There are a number of other circumstances where relief from some or all customs charges may be available. If you think your goods may be eligible for a relief you should contact the Customs Helpline for further information.


    2.4 Gifts

    Goods sent as a gift that are over £40 in value are liable to import VAT. Customs duty also becomes payable if the value of the goods is over £135 but is waived if the amount of duty calculated is less than £9.
    To qualify as a gift:

    • the customs declaration must be completed correctly
    • the gift must be sent from a private person outside the EU to a private person(s) in this country
    • there is no commercial or trade element and the gift has not been paid for either directly or indirectly
    • the gift is of an occasional nature only, for example, for a birthday or anniversary.

    Note: if you purchase goods from outside the EU to give as a gift to a relative or friend, whether or not addressed to that person, is treated as a ‘commercial consignment’ for which the import VAT relief threshold is £18 (paragraph 2.3 refers).


    To summarize.

    Commercial goods (i.e. bought over the internet) the limit is £18 & 'friends' sending a gift have an allowance up to £40

    But when you have added postage is it all going to be worth it ?

    With current exchange rates on regular priced items perhaps not. Deal of the day type deals could offer some savings though.

    The orders Ive made from US do not add the postage charge to the value of the item on the customs label.

    So if you make an order for $20 and it costs $7 to ship, they will only mark down $20, they wont include the delivery.

    Is that what you mean ? small items only cost $7 to be delivered.

    If the value of the goods exceeds the threshold, they will then include the postage value in their calculations for VAT & excise duty. If the parts cost £20 & the shipping is £5, they will calculate the fees payable payable by you on the £25 (goods + shipping). If the value of parts is £17 & the shipping is £5 then they do not add the values together & therefore you should not be charged.

    ah it's not so bad over to Ireland. I regularly have orderes from DDM for 50, 70, 100 dollars. Don't get stung by customs on any of them.

    I find any orders under about 150 dollars usually skip through customs without a bother. Over the past three years I've been hit only three times on orders for 60, 200, and 500 dollars. For the amount of money I've spent in that time I'll not compain
