Thank you also for helping me understandThe threshold to trigger import duties is $800, but third party carriers (FedEx, UPS, DHL) scam you in a sense by calling import tax when in reality it's their convenience fee. In my experience third party carriers are usually able to move stuff through customs quicker as opposed to the global postal system. With post I've had stuff sit for weeks waiting to clear.
I wouldn't necessarily mind the "convenience fee" knowing that it'll probably get to me quicker, but what irks me is that they try to hide it as being related to import tax when in fact that's complete bs.
ooooo boy I had no idea so is it better for y’all to order let’s say two or three things from aero at a time or notYou US folks have it so good! Up to $800 tax free!!!
UK is £135!!
It's VAT that is charged on anything above £39I thought it was like £50...
It's VAT that is charged on anything above £39
VAT is charged on all goods (except for gifts worth £39 or less) sent from:
outside the UK to Great Britain
outside the UK and the EU to Northern Ireland
VAT is not charged on goods that are gifts worth £39 or less."
so yeah... 20%, even worse than import duties lol
Yeah, well... That's life, I guess...Yeah, used to be GBP16 for VAT, I think.... As I recall, last time I ordered something in from the US (which I haven't since the pound dropped down the u -bend in 2016), it was:
import tax at 4.5% - on the cost of the item *and* the shipping
Then VAT at 20% on top of that total.
In 2008, it was well worth paying that and the shipping, as things were so much cheaper coming rom the US. In 202, it very much is not!
I don't know if it went through, but not so long ago, the European Union was looking to raise the overall personal allowance for goods physically brought back by folks on holiday from somewhere around e150 to e1000. No idea where they are with that now, though obviously that won't benefit those of us in the UK.
