Regarding the UK (or anywhere in the EU), you don't get any VAT or customs fees anywhere......

The US is different of course..
Oh you get VAT. Charged (iirc) by the country of shipment at whatever rate applies for that country; typically around 18-20% for most countries and goods. You might not percieve it as it will be included in the price you pay. But it's there. Although no customs fees.


Try to order in the US from the EU and you will be in a Switzerland position. Although I guess the fees might be lower and I've no idea what the limits might be.
