A lot also depends on HOW the person who ships it to you labels/declares the product...

The thing is to make sure they declare an amount which looks realistic for the size of the package and whats in it.

Putting a lower value is easy peasy for vintage stuff because you could have bought it dirt cheap on EB or Craigslist or from a private seller. But not new or from a wholesaler which you can go to a website and check RRP.

VAT @ 20% + import duties %.

Import duties vary from item to item.

I did some checks on this website and said the followings

Import duty & taxes made easy | DutyCalculator



Total customs value (CIF):

353.46

This is the amount that customs values your import at



- Duty:

0.00



- VAT:

70.69



Total import duty & taxes due:

70.69

This is the amount that needs to be paid to customs



Total landed cost:

424.15

This is the total cost of importing, including product, shipping, insurance and import duty & taxes





at exchange rate of 1 GBP = 0.6094 USD




Calculation notes


Notes on duty & taxes rates
Tablet Pc 7" is duty free and has a VAT rate of 20%.

Notes on import taxes due
Please note that your shipping provider may add an additional handling fee

its saying that tablets are duty free is that correct?

regards
