Selling stuff to EU countries

Handling costs will be from the courier you used. Use a different courier.
With most couriers you can opt to pay the vat on behalf of the customer and you can then claim it back on your vat return. You can also pay the duty for the customer but can't claim that back.
I'm sure that's a great relief to someone who has suddenly incurred costs through no fault of his own.

Yeah we got a letter from Parcel Force this morning, someone has sent us something from Switzerland (we don't know what or who, as we have loads of mates who live there, so it could be from one of about 30 people) and they want us to pay £31.25 in import fees and handling charges to even find what it is.

It could be worth a quid for all we know, until we open it.
To be fair that can’t have anything to do with brexit

This is a new one. We’ve had denying the impacts of Brexit, ignoring the impacts of Brexit, saying “it’s not that bad” and no openly laughing at the consequences of Brexit. What is wrong with you?

It used to be called scaremongering ST. The rules are- "no animal products allowed into the EU from outside the EU." Many Brexiteers thought this was funny and labelled it "Project Fear". The UK has the same rules but whether they are applied or not is a different story.

Funny how on a Brexit thread someone asked where the remainers were and the reaction was “oh its like this is it expected to be on and answering at the beck and call of the brexiteers” but i should be immediately on here to answer someone moaning about charges selling things to the EU

Yeah ok
But while you are here Coops do you not feel inclined to get involved.😉

I voted Brexit. I don’t agree with where I believe EU is heading, which is an EU superstate, as I have previously discussed many times (I am not xenophobic but I think it unworkable for a number of reasons) and I stand by that. However, I also believed we would have a Parliament ‘big enough’ to put aside party politics and that would set aside differences in the ‘greater good’ to assemble the best possible team not only from Parliament but experts in the relevant fields (law, business and business negotiations etc) to negotiate an orderly and mutually beneficial withdrawal agreement with the EU, to enable both the UK and EU to grow side by side but independent of each other. The more time has passed, and the more squabbling, self interest, corruption and incompetence I see, the more I can’t help but feel let down and that I have been (I have allowed myself to be) duped / deceived. I am disappointed in myself.

I can only apologise.

FWIW, I voted labour at the last 2 elections and lib-dem prior to that.

It was our very own Royal Mail. The UK post office.

I do use couriers for >2kg parcels but have yet to see the service on offer that you claim?

FWIW there is no duty payable for records & CDs

Thanks for speaking out about this, it's actually quite brave of you considering 90% (guess) of this board are remainers and I am sure you get a lot of flak as a result.

Question - what is it exactly that you feel you have been deceived about?
