You could always add this for just shy of a penny to the order

Is the charge a certainty, or a gamble?

Sure the rules have changed ... something like up to the value of £150 now.

Would not like a refurb unit from China with about a weeks postage time when you can get them for about £80 here

yeah, but I wanted the cobalt/blue one.

How are Tax and Customs duties handled?

Because DX sends products from Hong Kong (a free port), there is no sales tax or duties imposed by the Hong Kong government. Customers do not have to pay any sales tax or export duties when they purchase from DX.

Statistically, well less than 1% percentage of all DX orders have ever got opened by the Customs in customers' countries. If the package is checked by their country's customs office when the item arrives in their country, however, customers are responsible for import duties, tariffs, and taxes.

Although the chance of packages being Customs assessed is small, DX strongly encourages all customers to check with their local Customs office for any potential import taxes, duties, and tariffs. In addition, some products may require special licenses or permits to import (such as high powered lasers). DX is not responsible for products being confiscated by the Customs in customers' countries.

Import tax has been raised, but you still have to pay vat + £10 royal mail handling charge if customs stop it, they might not do but it is a gamble and not worth it when you can get brand new UK ones for not much more than £65

There is no way they can possibly know this for sure. HMRC depends upon the levies it can charge for imports, and Royal Mail encourages it because there's a tidy little mark-up for them each time they pay the charge up front for customers.

In other words, it's not in anybody's interests (other than yours) for these packages not to be checked.

Any time I've ordered anything from oversease which passes the non-EU goods allowance (£18), it's been intercepted and subject to charges.

Given that this product is refurbished, you are still likely to have its value assessed at list price. Even if it's not, you will (at best) have to pay an additional £19.75 (15% of £65 + £10 RM handling fee). That brings the price up to just under £85 for a second-hand DS.

Does that seem like good value? It doesn't to me.

This is just out-and-out untrue when it comes to the UK.

Thats a nice bit of sales speal by DX. Customs know who import into the UK, a lot of them have had particular pressure put on them the courier services DHL/Fed Ex to examine packages and China have had a crackdown on exports to European counties so they have to be particularly accurated in what they state is in the package. A 'LOT' more packages get charges than before escpecially if they are coming into the UK via Milan or Paris depots, if they come in at one of these they they will certainly be inspected.

Getting that VAT invoice from DHL or Fed Ex is great NOT!

I've had over 100 packages from DX and not paid a penny import tax. Packages have been everything between £2 and £200

Same here, so all the people saying customs will check most things and nail you most of the time are also guessing.

Think of how many parcels come into the UK from outside the UK and Europe each day. Do you seriously expect the HMCE to have anywhere near the amount of staff needed to check all the parcels and packages coming in?

If they are coming into UK from HK post they its impossible to check but I was on about couriers.

If they are sending £200 stuff via HK post and not declaring its true value and contents then that is an issue which the chinesse have addressed with exporters in HK.

I went to an Expo few months back and a load of HK companies were been 'supervised' by chinesse officials from what I was told they are dishing out high value products in standard low value HK post and they got a serious wrap for it, we'll all start to see stuff coming into UK if they are of this type of value through couriers and I know that both Milan and Paris have examination points for a lot of countries c&ex.

I get my Samsung CE stuff from HK and they are having problems

This post will struggle I'm afraid, if nothing else, because of recent post: http://tinyurl.com/c2v7fg (New, delivered, with guitar hero game and guitar controller thingy for £79.99).

I'm voting............ http://pacmanpi.com/I/Ice-Age-2-The-Meltdown.jpg
