It will depend if you are lucky or not. I didn't pay a thing for the two Bills jerseys i got last week. Offically you have to pay duty on anything over £36 in value. This is handled by Parcelforce who kindly charge you £8+ for the privilege.

Oh ok, so you don't have to do anything special, they just make you pay when it gets into the country?

Yep, if customs let it go then you have it without paying anything more, some sellers will mark the customs declaration form down to avoid the charges. Customs are normally too busy to check single items. In all my years of collecting from the US i've probably paid customs charges under 10 times. Grips when they do charge though.

I always ask for the seller to Mark customs form as 'gifts' and at lower value to avoid these charges but companys and online stores will rarely do this.

Yeah I'm the worst type of criminal there is! Out of all the tax and we pay here I think were owed something.
