I hope so as if not I'm £300.00 down for the excess

White van man seems to think it will go down as a 50/50
Let's hope he's wrong

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Software updates. BitTorrent updated today to a new version that has yet to be authenticated by my private tracker so I've had to spend time rolling it back and now I've lost the current torrents. Hopefully re-authenticating the actual downloads and reconnecting them to the .torrent files will fix it.

I've located and saved the registry key that controls which version is loaded so if it happens again I can just restore the key rather than rolling back the install.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I bought something from Japan on Ebay for my partner, it is a Japanese figure toy costing $34, but i have been handed a grey card for delivery saying i need to pay £14 customs charge of £5ish VAT and £8ish handling charge.

I have never had to pay a customs charge on anything before and i have ordered similar items in the past, so my questions are...

1. Is it random as to whether you get stung for import duty?
2. Is there always a handling charge and how can i avoid this charge in the future?

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

IIRC there's a £25 threshold before customs etc start to look at foreign orders. I had to pay VAT on some T-shirts that came from the states and pay the post office for the privilege of them doing it for me and then holding the parcel 'til I paid.

Just got this off the post office website, is it a case of always paying or only if they decide to check?

Any goods imported into the UK over the value of £15 are liable for import VAT.
Gifts between private individuals over the value of £39 are also liable for VAT. Goods and gifts over these values may also be liable for customs duty.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I think it depends on how the goods are classed. I've had stuff from China that has been shown as zero value and "Gift" despite being significant in value.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I've had my first scam call from the Inland Revenue. Really annoyed that when I pressed the phone went dead. Would have been fun to wind them and it would make fro the Internet line being closed one !

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Having problems sorting out my car insurance due to card used had expired and it took a while to get the company to get card updated. This was about 3 weeks ago and just had a letter from motoring club saying they hadn't had notice from the insurance company of my renewal.

Anyway we're safe for a few years now.
