Just heard from UPS and my Warmoth parts will be here tomorrow, I will post pics once they're here  :headbang: Unfortunately though the British customs and excise people have been in touch for the import duty  :( Oh well it'll be worth it once the boxes arrive

Hi,

I too am in the UK and expecting delivery in the next few weeks.

How do customs and excise contact you?

I would prefer it if the wife did not find out the price  :toothy11: and a card through the door whilst I'm at work may be a bit of a giveaway.

For mine they just asked for the money when it was delivered, cost me around £100, which is what I was expecting.

UPS called me when the kit arrived at the nearest depot.  I paid them taxes and duties and on a debit card over the phone.  UPS said they'd sort it with customs.
The stuff was on my desk the next morning.

Is there a threshold before you start to get charged, JR?  As yet, I've yet to be charged an import tax for Australia.  I read somewhere 5% tax if the value is over $1,000? Does that sound right?

Lucky you :) Here in Norway we have to pay 25% tax if the value is over $40 :sad:

here its 22%, but still... its due to the fact that we're importing stuff. Everything that I wanna bring into the netherlands, were I live, and it originated from a non-EU country, I have to pay tax.

What if it's something that say a "family member" sends to you from overseas. Do you still have to pay tax on that to? :icon_scratch:

Not just from the US. There's an import tax on everything from outside the EU, but for everything from inside the EU or from your on country there's a sales tax (VAT, BTW, MWST or whatever) which is slightly lower than the import tax but very often not even that much. And sometimes you get lucky. I didn't have to pay anything on the package you sent me.

Yeah but they only work 2 hours a day, 6 months out of the year!  Lucky Norweigans.
I guess that was a joke, or else you have been fooled by the one who told you that :doh:

familystuff, gift, repair... wont work. You'd have to pay too. especially with UPS. USPS sometimes, if customs really opens the parcell, but UPS has its own customsdepartment, and works a bit different, and with UPS we always have to pay.

about gasoline, thats here 11 dollars/gallon, and 1 pack of sigarettes, is 7 dollars, of which at least 50% is tax.
