    Just a heads up for importers - The VAT threshold for items imported from outwith the EU dropped from 18 to 15 on the 1st of November.

    Stealthy, stealthy HMRC. Stubmled across that one quite by accident.

    Section 2.3

    Haven't imported anything from outside the EU in ages. Is the handling fee still 8?

    That's not the end of it, the tax loophole will be completely closed in April.

    Thought this was good on the old have your say...

    Dear HMRC, when we asked you to close tax loopholes, we meant the ones where the richest in the land were withholding billions. We also meant the loopholes that allow the largest companies to offshore their profits. We absolutely did not ask you to increase the price of our Christmas presents.
    Also, I sort of feel for the poor bastards in the channel islands who will be losing their jobs.

    It's not the import tax that bothers me, it's the 8 handling fee Royal Mail arbitrarily throw on there that does the damage.

    Yep. The processing fees are a joke. WTF are they doing that they need so much?

    God forbid we clamp down on the obscene banker bonuses - which are back with a vengeance. God forbid we tax the rich who get rich off the back of everyone else slaving away.

    I wonder if someone could make a healthy profit by importing US films/games/etc to an EU country and selling them to the UK?
