    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.

    I hadn’t realised the current situation is temporary. Like you, I’m a Prime member and I’ve been taking advantage of the lower prices on items under £22.

    What happens on 31st July now? Will it not just mean that VAT will be added at 21 or 23% as happens with anything over £22 at the moment? So in reality just a 1 or 2% increase?

    I think from July the vendor charges the VAT on the sale (ie no more exemption for < 22€ )

    I ordered this 2 days ago when I saw your post and it arrived this morning!! Unbelievable as orders from Amazon have slowed down a lot since Christmas.

    But I’m well chuffed. Remastered on 180g vinyl (though honestly it feels heavier than the other 180g discs I have for some reason) plus the extra disc of studio outtakes. All for under €17 delivered. How could you not??

    Cheers for the heads up
