do I need to pay tax in the UK?
"If you buy goods online from outside the EU for delivery to the UK, you'll have to pay Customs Duty (if over £120 value) and Import VAT (if over £18) on top of the purchase price (including duties), though Customs Duty is waived if the amount of the calculated duty payable is £7 or less."
Probably VAT plus import duty.
I'm buying from Spain and according to an import calculator, it works out at 79.66€ VAT and 7.44€ duty, an extra 87.10€ on top of the 371.88€.
458.98€ altogether, certainly hope it's not more, fingers crossed!
From previous experience, it can be a bit of a lottery, bought an ebike kit from China a couple of years ago (725€) and I only paid 46€.
Also bought another set of cans from the USA for nearly 300€ and didn't pay anything extra.
