Has anyone in the UK received their K-Type yet? I'm interested to know what the import tax would be.
The import duty rate for importing Computer accessories into United Kingdom is 0% , the import VAT is 20%, when classified under Computers & Office → Computer Components → Input Units | keyboards - wired with HS commodity code 8471.60.6000
The tracking says mine just arrived at customs at Heathrow! Find out soon I guess.
I just had to pay these, and I think they are the charges for my K-Type. (I say I think, because I had some other stuff arriving too)
Customs Entry £ 8.00
Import Duty £ 18.00
Import VAT £ 33.73
Total £ 59.73
How did you receive the notification? Mine is in heathrow customs and I have no idea how to pay :( Not received and email or anything.
Relax. It takes a few days sometimes from it arriving in customs before you get sent an email with instructions.
Hopefully some of your other stuff contributed that total :D I'll find out soon hopefully.
Just double checked. Duties paid on tracking, so that was the total for only the K-Type.
My charges were £ 59.79 too.
Mine still hasn't been processed by customs :( Spoke to Customs UK, apparently they are running a few days behind
Not the most efficient organisation I'm guessing.
The charges are a lot more than I was expecting! Can't not pay though xD
Right! more than I was expecting too - Especially annoyed that I may need to order some keycaps too if the finish is as rough as others are saying... I mean I was going to do it anyway but still :/
Oh god...I just felt the keycaps! They feel horrible! Mine arrived today: It looks great, my those keycaps are bad! Typing this on my new K-Type! They feel horrible to type on sadly! Ruins and otherwise lovely looking board.
Ohh no :(. I think I'm going to get some tai-hao caps and then wait for a really nice set to drop in the future.
@abrakspear I paid the fee on Monday and it's still in customs, sigh.
wot, that's weird! Yodel hasn't got mine yet. This is how mine went, and yodels status says "It will be with us soon"

speak of the devil, I have just got it! and thank goodness it has all its keys and appears in perfect order :D
stabilisers are so very rattly tho
Still havent been asked pay duty on it?
Nice! You must have slipped through the net :D
Wow...that's very lucky! Mine was paid online, but they don't deliver until it's paid usually, so very weird.
