This is how the import costs work. Import duty on a musical instrument should be 3% on the purchase price, shown on a declaration chitty stuck by sender onto the package. Sometimes private sellers "forget" to make the declaration, then you need to get an appraisal of value if Customs twig it's chargable. Customs & Excise will charge VAT (currently 15%) on the total of; purchase price + shipping cost + duty. Tony.

All leave cancelled for the next two days! ;)

 

I just hope its the local P.O depot, not the parcel force one or else I'll have to go all the way to chelmsford.

managed to pay online...not as bad as I was expecting..although £12 for 'special' saturday delivery I thought was a bit sneeky.

 

Wow, the notion of a saturday delivery is non existant in Canada, at least in Quebec. I'd pay £12 anytime to have an instrument on saturday and to not have to wait until monday!

Wow,I've been following the thread and I didn't think the PO would manage to deliver it before Monday.

Have a lovely weekend with your new instrument.
