Thanks for the input, Bat. Sounds pretty convincing to me and I fully agree. VAT should be deducted but isn't, that's bad. But Aero does, according to that 2021 invoice of yours, mark their products as UK made, that's good! Hopefully they're using the correct codes on the customs form, and not just the invoice (that little detail went through the press often enough). Shame they don't say so in their shipping policy, though. It would be great advertisement and all it takes is adding one sentence to the shipping policy. All that assuming and messaging to Aero on that latter topic for nothing - I'd expect they did get enough messages asking about that!
