Default Re: UK Custom Charges Duty

I have been told that this is because of the EU and their policies. I have shipped many things to people in both Cyprus and the UK and everything that was shipped from the US to anywhere in the EU had terrible customs and VAT added. If you think the tobacco tax is high, you should see what they do for electronics like laptop computers. They want you to do your buying within the EU so they charge high amounts for things coming from outside the EU and especially high when coming from the US.
