Re: Customs Duties on mail order items

feck me, but this is an old thread and the only reason i found it all ( i don't for obvious reasons look in here very often....)is cos someone sent me a PM regarding a very old ad that i'd posted.

just as a conversation piece i'll comment that my swiss wife's sister sent her some swiss chocolate when she was in england and before i even met her. we're talking about 35 years ago..............

value of swiss chocolate about 20 swiss francs, at that time less than £5 sterling.

the UK customs demanded about a £tenner import duty on it and i can only assume that they ate it themselves at the border or it was destroyed at great cost to the taxpayer (me) cos there was no way that that sum was ever going to be paid............

i'm about to order something from france which will be under the Fr.500 limit and i HOPE to get away with minimum Fr.18 post charge.

bon weekend.

i may be ahead of my time with that statement.
