Default HMRC Custom on tobacoo

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/budget2009/bn85.htm

1 kilo = 76.12

is thier anyway in which al fakher and other brands can put the original weight of tobacco, this does no justice!!!!!!!! they need to chage the law remembers thats excluding other taxes

for example if i was to order 1kg af for 20 from dubai it will cost me

in excess of over 100 thats ridiculous !!!! and dont forget the other taxes

tobacco doesnt weight that much !!

the only way that i have found a legal solution is as following

if the original af tobacco weight 50grams per 1kg

therfore for 20kg tobacco = 76.12


so basically lets all put pressure on af and other companies to put the original weight of tobacco !!! so people in uk cannot suffer from droughts and buy stuff legally !!! at the end of the day the government will make money is well!

So war needing money, and government getting that money by taxing us, and not spending it on war is greed?

lol im buzzin in the wee hours of the morning lol what you recon are the percentage of tobacco to molasses in weight


90-10
80-20
70-30
?

ive worked it out if for instance it was 90-10

then per 1kg it would be 100g tobacco

so therfore if i order 10kg i would get charged 76.12 which is more reasonable

dont forget the 17.5 VAT

if i buy from al fakher at 15 per kg thefore for 10 kg price would be:

15*10 = 150 + 17.5% VAT = 176.25

176.25+ 40 delivery charge = 216.25

216.25 + 76.12 = 292.37

29.24 per kg LEGALLY which is a good price

1. They were charging duties on tobacco long before the current shenannigans in Iraq.
2. Costs of the military (including deployments to the M.E.) pale in comparison to the costs of welfare programs.
3. The state never 'makes enough money'.

It's absolutly rediculous. We need to pay taxes for causes not our own. They let us pay taxes on stuff that makes us happy so basically they don't want us happy and only if your rich can you enjoy those things....
