Importing to UK
#1
Hi.  Just ordered the NDLR. Can anyone tell me about the cost of importing into the UK and the procedure? Is all the documentation provided?

Thanks

Rob

Not sure how the UK works but in Holland customs will hold the package in 'hostage' and send you an invoice for tax + some extra costs. When you pay the invoice they release the package. The whole process can take up to 2 weeks.

If you are lucky they don't check it and just forward it to you without additional costs.

Thanks. I think it'll be similar in the UK then, as it's from outside EU - should have similar procedure.

Thanks, seen that but doesn't tell you much about how it works - what they do to contact you, how long it takes etc. I think it'll be like Regrib described but will take 6 weeks rather than 2.

There's an import tax surcharge of around £30 in the UK. You'll get a note from the post person and have to pick it up where you can pay the charge.

Oh yes, I've had UK customers tell me they receive a card in the post. The card includes a link to a site for paying online. So far we've never had a parcel rejected passing UK customs. We have had more problems with German customs, so we ship DHL to Germany now which seems to help.
