Import tax through UK customs is between 5% and 9% of the total cost (product plus postage) then VAT gets added on top which is 20%.

It sucks so bad, I did a trade with someone on here and required £42 just to get the item! It was worth it though as it was for a begins cowl.

Re: UD Replicas UK Customs Charge


I just sent something to the UK with a $400 value on it and the customs fee is $149 . Seems high to me but if that info helps you figure it out you now have it. Based on this info and the UD suit charge (wasn't it about $1000, roughly) I'd guess you'll owe somewhere around $350 in customs fees.

Just rough numbers..
