    Does anyone know what import duty charges I will incur?

    Hi Guys / Girls,

    Just wondering if anyone can help me out? I am waiting to receive a parcel from China, which includes the following.

    New Aero Frame (inc fork,seatpost)
    handlebar with stem
    Carbon Bottle Cage x 2
    Carbon Saddle.

    I live in the UK and my parcel is currently with Parcelforce, and is awaiting customs clearance. My parcel has a sample goods value of $85.00. Does anyone know what import duty charges I will incur?

    Thanks in advance, Geebo

    20% import VAT, so c. 11 (if based on the $85) plus 12 for Parcelforce's handling fee.

    I wonder if your customs folks may be aware that carbon frames from China cost much more than the $85 declaration of your package? If so, possible fraud? Not by you as you didn't declare the value but it could lead to seizure of your frame.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your replies and their was no fraud as that was the agreed price with both parties and it was a sample order.

    Regards, Geebo
