[QUOTE=Laidback]So did you tell Ray to declare £22 & £40 ??
No. Hadn't even thought of that. Was expecting to pay for the import duties at full price if needed.
Not sure Ray even knew as forms were filled out at the Hong Kong end.
Invoice declared value of computer monitor as £22 which coincidently is how much extra I had to specify to pay for the touchscreen. Sort of buy touch screen get screen declared as nothing
Just received mine, lilliput with touch screen. 285$ shipped to Denmark, no duty taxes :-)
To UK buyers £230 inc delivery and bank 'wire transfer' no duty or VAT as in the european union..
