I saw cribbs74 lot including a good looking pt19 plane and several engines on here.

After research about UK import duty and vat, I discovered I would be liable for these. Along with shipping costs and UK taxes on the total amount, sadly I am unable to purchase, sorry cribbs for buggering you about.

Buying stuff from USA or any other country has become, since Brexit, so so expensive.

I assume it's the same for USA people to buy stuff from abroad ?

Even "gifts" sent from abroad to the UK can have these "taxes" imposed. Parcels can he opened and contents inspected. If deemed to be worth more the about £40 by the powers that be, these taxed can be applied with no appeal procedure.

Seems the UK tax man has us by the short and curlies.

I can understand being taxed on imported new stuff, but pre owned second hand stuff ?

Anyway it is what it is, it was nice to dream for a while.

Rest assured, that buying from the USA or any country outside the EU remains expensive even if you live inside the EU. Up to an import value of 150 Euro, you only pay the VAT (in Hungary, where I live, this is 27% of the shipped goods value) Above 150€ value (that includes shipping cost too), in addition to the VAT, the payment of import custom duty is also mandatory.

So, regardless whether you live inside or outside the EU, buying from the US is a golden opportunity for your national customs and tax authorities to earn fiscal taxes...

Yeah, interestingly though, Seems ordering from EU is out for now. Ordering from Russia is out due to embargo.

Have been able to pick up a few things from China recently, small stuff like wheels that are hard to get here, 2.4 GHz module. Think I only paid NM gross receipts tax. Haven't bought anything over the tariff limit yet ($200?), so haven't had to pay customs duties. Usually, have been able to find sellers this side with same stuff, so don't have to order direct from China. Let them deal with the customs duties issues.
