    Not Brexit related but...

    I wasn't aware of the £15 VAT threshold in UK being removed. How did I miss that one? Is it January 1st or July 1st as I've seen both dates quoted? If it is January 1st, does that mean that two LPs I bought from Deepdiscount.com in USA for delivery to UK under £15 will now have VAT and admin fees added by Royal Mail? They got delivered by Hermes last time! Or because they were purchased before Jan 1st am I still okay???

    Here's my answer! It's already gone...so no £15 vat free import threshold to UK. They sneaked that one in didn't they?

    Below is a screenshot from HMRC..the bottom paragraph casually mentions in passing that the £15 LVCR has been removed! Bugger :(

    It's definitely 1st of January for imports into UK, whether from EU, USA or anywhere. The £15 LVCR has been removed. I just looked it up on HMRC and posted a screenshot above. I just tried to repurchase an LP from deep discount for $7 plus postage..... normally VAT free...now 20% added. I think HMRC have just been lazy and made all imports to UK subject to VAT now.

    Please, let's keep the conversation in line with the thread topic. Please start a new thread to discuss non-deals related issues.

    But depending on where members live, knowing the changes in VAT/postage/handling charges will help them to determine whether a posted deal is going to be worthwhile, or not. Pushing that sort of information off to a separate thread somewhere likely won't help those who are actively watching this thread.
