  1. Hi, I've got a problem with the delivery for an eBay item I purchased from Japan, and hope someone can provide some helpful advice. I received a letter from Parcelforce saying the package was subject to Import VAT of £14.08 plus a Clearance Fee of £13.50. My problem is that these charges are wrong, not incorrect, but wrong. The sender uses a tracked mailing service, and the address label on their packages ( I have bought similar items from them before) shows the value of the contents. My guess is that someone has misread the value, which is typed not handwritten, hence
  2. Hi sorry if this is the wrong forum, I couldn't really find a match-fit I imported some goods from the US a while back and they were delivered straight away by DHL International. Some time after this, I received mails saying that I owed them for Import Duties & VAT. I rang them and the person I spoke to said that DHL would never under any circumstances release any shipment that required payment(s) without that payment first being made in full. He advised me to ignore any future mails. Mails kept coming but I ignored them. I have now had two correspondences from an ou
  3. Hi, I received an item from Canada on the 28th of April 2015, via FedEx ..I was pleased at the time as it had arrived quickly and I assumed they hadn't charged me import and taxes, but today (the 13th of may) i received a request to pay £75. needless to say i felt deflated and very anxious. I had a similar situation with DHL a few years back, although that was a lesser amount and I won that.. I just can't afford this and the reason is that the money I had set aside for import charges, I thought I didn't need as I received the parcel with no
  4. just filled out a V55 to import a used car back into uk from Germany. Having checked everything thrice due to knowing how incompetent DVLA are at the simple things in life i have managed to find another way in which Joe public is left frustrated by yet more shortfalls in the vast management down there in swansea who pretend that they providing a service to us all. i have found that in their leaflets that explain how to apply to import a vehicle they have neglected to imform us of HOW to pay for the privilege !!!!! plenty of info on how much to pay but nothing on HOW to submit your pay
  5. Hi everyone, New here, so apologies in advance if this has been asked before. I have recently received a letter in the post from Control Account PLC about my owing them £29.49 for money outstanding to DHL International in relation to charges incurred by HM Customs & Excise. Today I received a 2nd letter stating I have 14 days to make the payment. The rest of the letter is pretty much the same. I proceeded to look into my Amazon and Ebay history for the past year, as I am unable to record when I may have purchased something from outside the EU that could incur a levy
  6. How do they calculate how much tax you pay for things bought outside the EEC? And are there any things that dont generate tax? Just querying because I bought some medical appliance covers for my ostomy from America(they are nicer than those available here) and they have charged me £5 for something I only paid $15 for then the post office added £8 handling fee as well so almost doubling what I have had to pay
  7. When ordering goods (for example on the Internet) from outside the EU, import VAT is not due if value of goods is less than £15: http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/buying.htm#3 What if one makes multiple orders from the same retailer, each of them of less than £15 of value? Would the HMRC count these as a single order and impose VAT or treat them as individual items? Thank you
