this is a "General Discussions" sub forum relating to Pyra . speculating on how Brexit may affect delivery and price of the Pyra seems to be a general discusion.
Its the moderators job to police the validity of threads and posts not ANYONE else except ED that is.....
Sorry ED, I believe you are wrong. Please check this before it causes you a lot of potentially expensive trouble.Just a quick head-up: There's no issue with the Brexit and the Pyra or other shipments from my shop.
For me, it's just like any other country outside the EU. Your Pyra price will be without VAT and you have to pay import VAT to customs instead (usually handled by the courier).
Businesses making sales of goods not exceeding £135 in value (per consignment) to customers in the UK, where the goods are outside the UK at the point of sale, will become liable to register and account for VAT on those sales.
No idea. Be so good as to let the forum know when you find out.Curious. So imagine that an UK customer buys from abroad two items at the same time, one with a £100 price, and another with a £50 price.
Since the online order is above £135, the customer doesn't pay VAT at purchase time and waits to pay it at the border.
Then something happens, and the commerce can't deliver one of them, or can't deliver them at the same time because it runs out of stock and resupply time is long.
Can the commerce ship only one of the items or must retain the first item until second item availability? Must the commerce then register and charge VAT to the customer in a separate payment before shipping ?
What happens then when the customer receives only one of the items ? Must the customer pay import VAT at border because it hasn't been paid yet, or not because it's under £135 ?
No idea. The UK and the EU had some kind of deal at the last minute. That has changed the UK law but might also change EU law. I don't know.UK law doesn't apply to ED, since neither he or his shop are in the UK.
I don't know but I fear that then UK customs retains the package ? Then customers are unhappy and foreign sellers get complaints and lose future sales. That's why some of them simply refuse to ship to UK.It is interesting to see how this pans out though, if the UK are expecting ED to have charged VAT/sales tax on the item, and he's been advised to let the courier collect VAT.
If a package does not conform to local law it is illegal and therefore they may just destroy it - and then they'll likely even charge you for that. Something similar happened to a friend of mine, he acquired an engineering sample of an unreleased AMD CPU, but the board it was mounted on had a WiFi chip that was too powerful for EU regulations - they actually managed to find this detail and just destroyed everything. I wouldn't be surprised if UK customs are handling things in the same way.I don't know but I fear that then UK customs retains the package ?
