Import duties

5 posts in this topic

My new Ugg boots have just arrived from Australia.  this is the link.  www.uggbootsforall.com

it is the second pair i have ordered from this company.  when i ordered the first pair i had to pay over £20 import taxes etc.  this time i never had to pay any form of duty whatsoever.  im not complaining because £100 for a pair of Ugg boots is a bargain even i enbded up paying the duties.

has anyone ever experienced the same thing? cant think why this has happened

Did they arrive from Australia, or maybe a warehouse near you. That may make a difference.

The sheer number of parcels in circulation worldwide is mind-boggling now and the system is still supervised by humans. Parcels will be missed or sorted erroneously ans not placed into a bonded warehouse so no duty or customs inspection takes place. No different than an envelope with a stamp that never got cancelled by the postal equipment despite going through the system. Government systems are designed to screen the bulk of such items but some will get through as it is inevitable. HappyinHeels
