    Default Thanks for the memory

    ok all you tightwads, who can find the cheapest memory stick duo card (scandisk or sony)?
    price has to include vat & shipping to the uk.

    i'll start off with www.Photo-Scotland.co.uk

    256MB - 29.99 + 1.60 postage = 31.59
    512MB - 44.99 + 1.60 postage = 46.59
    1GIG - 99.99 + 1.60 postage = 101.59 (currently out of stock)

    Kpow - you are liable to duty -

    What is the rate of Duty?
    The rate of Duty for any given product should be the same no matter into which EU country they are imported, but may differ depending upon the country of origin. Set annually by the EU, rates run from 1st January to 31st December and are published in a Customs Tariff issued by each EU country. Duty is usually percentage based, and averages between 5-9% with extremes of nil and 85%.
    How is the rate determined?
    Goods are classified using the Customs Tariff in order to arrive at the rate of Duty. The EU uses a ten digit coding and there are approximately 14,000 classifications.
    What is the value for Duty?
    Customs assess the amount of Duty to be paid based on the declared value of the goods plus the transport costs to the country of destination.

    Kpow - I think if you read the rules you will find that customs duty ispayable on all goods that are bought from outside the EU. If you buy within the EU, you only pay the VAT.

    Link from Customs and Exise site -

    3.2 Do I have to pay duty or VAT on goods sent to me from outside the EC?

    Most goods arriving in the UK from outside the EC are liable to any or all of these charges:

    * Customs Duty;
    * Excise Duty; and
    * VAT.

    These must be paid whether:

    * you purchase the goods or receive them as a gift;
    * the goods are new or used; or
    * the goods are for your private use or for sale.

    If you can ask the sender to write 'Industrial Sample' on the packet then I've heard you won't have to pay. Don't quote me though.
