Sweep isn't asking what the regulations are, but how they have been applied by a particular seller. Of course a lot also depends on the particular customs officer (if any) handling it. There have been instances of sellers charging VAT for both countries or for neither, of duties being charged where they shouldn't and (more commonly so far) of no checks whatsoever.
AIUI there are several changes that haven't yet been implemented, such as the documentation for imported goods, and the introduction of UK-specific product marking. So the value of sharing experiences will continue for some time.
thank you jdsk
I thought my question entirely fair.
And it was of course nicely and politely answered by redvee in a spirit of sharing info.
Other experiences welcome.
